Hello Bill:

Here are the site links you'll need to check and/or get info, or buy your adapter kit for your Yami YG4600D Genset conversion kit.

Most likely it's running an 8 or 10HP engine on it now? In any case it's most likely less then 12HP. Not sure what size engine you have, as you didn't say only for the model #? On older Gensets it's harder to track down the HP rated engine is all.

For your Yami YG4600D Genset there you most likely will have your choice of at least 4 adapter kits depending on if you are going to keep gasoline as an option. If you're definitely NOT going to be ever running gasoline again then there are 1 or 2 adapter kits to choose from.

Use the site links below, and then browse whichever area you want as there are many options there. The last link listed takes you through all the different engines by make & model #'s.

I would also shop around locally where you are in LA, as you might be able to get that adapter kit for a lot less then the $227 to $267 they are asking for there at that site.

If you don't see your exact model # (or kit) there call them on their 800 toll free # listed at their site.

Also - if this site doesn't meet your expectations customer service wise at least you will have a starting off point with the wealth of information supplied there!

How reliable is patriot Power Generator?


Best to look for reviews on websites of companies that sell particular brands. Regardless of brand, make sure to drain fuel completely after use. Most small engine equipment, including generators, are not ethanol friendly, so use Pure Gas if available in your area. I recommend you look for a tri-fuel model that will run on gasoline, natural gas, or propane. Also, there are kits available to convert gas generator to tri-fuel or bi-fuel.

Your gas supplier would have the valves. I would not do this if you dont have the expertise. There are too many things that can go wrong and it could cost you in terms of life lost. You need to be able to measure gas pressure etc

Natural gas Bril King BBQ . Want to convert to Propane.


Unfortunately, there are no gas conversion kits available for any Broil King Grills. That's why they always make a Propane Model and a Natural Gas Model. In fact, Onward Manufacturing Co, the manufacturer of Broil King, don't recommend that conversions be attempted.

I'm sorry, I wish I had better news for you,
