Customer Question
We are on a...

We are on a farm... got our 30kw unit finished wired in by the electrican today and got the authorization code...all good to that point. unit is propane powered and was plumbed in by gas company a few weeks ago. tried to start the engine... and get error code 2650 - cam lobe error

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

It is a 1000 gallon underground tank.... at 80% full. Do you think we have a fuel line issue? possibly an air block?

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes... the electrical was done by electrician...and gas company did the gas hook up.... so at this point I was going thru the start engineer and warm up for 5 minutes step.---- with no success

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Is the message a fuel message? if so, I will have gas company come out and bleed the line.... motor turns over ... battery is fine... electrical all check out.
