Hello, new here.

I have a Kolher LP gas generator with a GM 5.7 (350 CID) engine.

I removed it from one of our yards but didn't check the primary regulator at the fuel tank.

Manual shows it needs 7-11 h2o water oz.

With that pressure engine only runs less than 700 rpm's. (Should be 1800 rpm's)

I believe I need a 10 psig primary regulator but not sure.

Any body know what the inlet pressure this regulator #2 on below image needs?

This regulator part # is GM16166

snap a pix of the tag on the generator with the exact model and serial number of the generator.
7-11 in of water column is what they are talking about... close to 2 psi after the second pressure regulator on an LP system.

rpm is set by the gov in a gen system....
unless it is coughing and sputtering.

do you have a pressure gauge set for looking at LP?
pm me if you need direct help.

place in test ports so you can check it at a later date easy as well.
fast connection for when you are doing your once a year PM on the gen set.
and a purge valve is nice as well.
just use brass caps on those valves.

Ok, I have another problem. Trying to set time and date, but seems like it is password protected, when I try to go to program mode, I get Access Denied error.

Don't even give me the option to enter a passcode.

Any ideas?

I have controller Kohler Decision-Maker 340.

those are password protected service level.
you need the service manual for the steps and the master pass word to override the controller as admin.
