Default Kero back to Propane for Rabbit

Hello Eric, thought this might be a great place for this information. As you know I have a Kero start Rabbit that I want to convert back to propane start. From our previous conversation you said that I would not need any new valves and didn't need to change the 3mm kero line back to 4mm.

You did say that there are some changes I need to make in the ICS.

I know you have been away from the office so I'm certian you are playing catch up on email.

Can you please reply here and let me know exactly what I need to change?

I have the engine ready to start.

Thanks again,

Jason

Jason, is there a reason you want to go back to propane?

Yes, I have two Rabbits in my YA F-15 (see build thread) and one is not Kero yet. So for now, I want to start both on Propane. Also with my tail pipe setup I cannot tolerate a wet or torched aborted Kero start. With Propane the start (heat) can be stopped immediatly.

Hello:

OK, Kero back to gas. . .

Required:

1 ea. Festo Gas solenoid
1 ea. Festo one way check valve for the line INTO the gas solenoid
1 ea. Festo 4mm to 3mm fitting
1 ea. Festo Yellow 4mm line from Festo Gas Solenoid to turbine. Length TBD
1 ea. Gas Filter/ restrictor

Optional:

1 ea, on board gas tank with Festo T fitting

Set up:

Turn system on; menu up to START INFO RUN RADIO screen
Enter START menu
Menu up to STart Mode "Auto - Kero"
Press the plus (+) key on the data terminal to switch to Auto - Gas
Turn system off

You are now ready to start on propane. Start Gas setting is preset at the factory

We offer a gas conversion kit if you prefer. Just call or email.

Sincerely,
Eric

Just wanted to let everyone out there that Jet Central has the BEST customer support I have EVER recieved from the three turbine mfg.'s I have ever owned.

Eric called me today and advised I would have everything I needed by this Thursday! And if that wern't enough...he is sending it FREE OF CHARGE! I'm so happy I go rid of my JetCat and AMT.

Jet Central has earned my trust and my business for many moons to come.

THANK YOU ERIC!

Jason
