This is a kit to convert our 3.5 KW Generator to run on Household Gas.

 The pieces.
 A small extension is fitted to the carburetor with a gas entrance in the extension.

 This is the gas regulator which we set for optimal running.

There we are, Up and running. ! 1 bottle lasts 10 hours and costs 17 Euros. I am going to do an accurate check with petrol, however, it looks as though we are saving about 25% on fuel costs, and also emissions are cleaner, so all in all, a good thing to do. Cost 225 Euros. A bit pricy but I think OK. I hope we will one day create bio-gas here, and be able to compress it enough to use as fuel for the generator. Nothing "on the horizon", yet. We wait. !

Water Pump renovation. Peter took it off it's frame, welded the broken frame, cleaned the magneto, painted the frame, and now it is back in service for when needed. Good. !

Hello All,

We are back from the Amazon, safe and sound and well. It is good to be back in El Rio and we are starting many projects.

I will start updates of pictures so that you can all see how we are getting on. 

The river has changed a lot, and the previous place where the canna bridge crossed the river is completely changed - no canna. !

Greetings to all of you and enjoy the pics. David.
