Hi JET Folks!
HAVE HAD REPLIES AND HAVE FOUND ONE

THANKS YOU !
I have a JetCat that starts on propane. I’m in search for a Propane Regulator Valve that connects to the small propane bottle then into a Festo type reducer, during the start sequence. If anyone may have one, I’m in the hunt!
Thanks for Looking through your stuff!
Regards,
Owen Penk

Re: PROPANE REGULATOR VALVE for JeCat Start


All you need is a Badger Air tank regulator valve. You can get them at your local hobby store for $10 or on line. If your after the trigger type that you attach the MaxPropane, I have one but might take a while to find it.

I used the Badger one for years with Pancake type bottles

Would also like to mention that the small bottle you speak of was used for onboard starts. I don't think there legal anymore and really just not needed. Everyone just runs a line straight to the solenoid, then again those too are a thing of the past as others including myself just ran a line straight to the engine. The GAS solenoid was used to shut of the gas from the onboard tank. Since your not using it.. no need to carry the solenoid or tank (extra weight) Plus if your carrying onboard propane and you nose your jet in, it makes for one helluva fire ball lol
