Sounds like water is getting into the engine. You could look to see if there are air bubbles in the radiator while engine is running this is usually a good indicator of a blown head gasket or other coolent leak.

How do you convert diesel engine to compressed natural gas engine?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Actually the average diesel engine can operate better on natural gas than on diesel only since the emissions issues are dramatically reduced. It can run fine if the diesel is dual fueled with at least 5% of the normal diesel fuel input (10-15% is even better). The amount of diesel co-fired is a factor of the economy and emissions sought by the conversion. In fact, we operate diesel engines on syn gas derived from wood and many other types of biomass via gasification. These systems can produce stationary mechanical power, electrical power or just heat while being co-fired with diesel, waste oil, trap grease, vegetable oil and others. Bioten Power and Energy Group
