Fuel Mixer for the Series 50G Low Pressure System
The venturi fuel mixer assembly consists of a die cast aluminum body with a spun aluminum venturi permanently inserted into it. The unit has no moving parts. The mixer assembly is attached to support brackets and located at the right rear of the engine. See Figure "Low Pressure Fuel System (Series 50G Engine)" .

Replacement of Fuel Mixer for the Series 50G Engine
The fuel mixer is non-serviceable and should be replaced as a unit. No adjustment is required.
Removal of Fuel Mixer for the Series 50G Engine
Remove the fuel mixer as follows:
To avoid injury from the explosion of natural gas, the engine must be kept in a well ventilated area away from open flames, sparks, and electrical resistance (heating) coils.
- Vent fuel system; refer to "2.43.1 Venting an Operable Engine to Relieve Natural Gas Pressure" and refer to "2.43.2 Venting an Inoperable Engine to Relieve Natural Gas Pressure" .
- Disconnect and remove the PSV from the fuel mixer, refer to "2.38.2 Removal of Pulse Width Modulated Stepper Motor Valve for the Series 50G Engine" .
- Remove four fuel mixer mounting bolts.
- Separate and remove the fuel mixer from the mounting bracket.
Disassembly of Fuel Mixer for the Series 50G Engine
Disassembly of the fuel mixer is not required.
Cleaning of Fuel Mixer for the Series 50G Engine
Cleaning of the fuel mixer is not required.
Inspection of Fuel Mixer for the Series 50G Engine
Inspection of the fuel mixer is not required.
Test of Fuel Mixer for the Series 50G Engine
Test of the fuel mixer is not required.
Installation of Fuel Mixer for the Series 50G Engine
Install the fuel mixer as follows:
- Clean gasket surface and install a new gasket.
- Secure the fuel mixer to the mounting bracket with four bolts. Torque to 20 N·m (15 lb·ft).
- Install the PSV to the fuel mixer, refer to "2.38.3 Installation of Pulse Width Modulated Stepper Motor Valve for the Series 50G Engine"
To avoid injury from an explosion of natural gas, the following precautions must be taken:
- Do not smoke when installing or servicing the engine or fuel system.
- Installation or servicing of natural gas equipment must only be conducted in well ventilated, natural gas-compatible areas. Do not install or service equipment in an enclosed area where ignition sources are present without first ensuring that an undetected gas leak may be safely vented without being ignited.
- Bleed natural gas lines before installing or servicing any component connected to the fuel lines.
- Natural gas fuel systems are pressurized. Relieve pressure from any fuel system component prior to installation or service of that component.
- Use a combustible-gas detector. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is odorless and cannot be detected by smell. Compressed Natural gas (CNG) may be odorless and may not be detected by smell.
- Equipment fuel systems are the responsibility of the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). Equipment fuel system guidelines must be closely adhered to when installing or servicing equipment. Refer to OEM guidelines specifying which maintenance procedures require venting of fuel lines and fuel tanks.
- LNG systems are pressurized and contain extremely cold (-162° C [-260° F]) fluids. Contact the fuel supplier or OEM for LNG safety requirements. Contact with LNG may cause personal injury (freezing).
- Vent systems on the equipment should be ducted to a safe area whenever equipment is in an enclosed area.
- Perform a leak check procedure. Refer to "2.43.3 Leak Checking the Natural Gas Fuel System" .
