I plan to go and be there at least part of the day. Between now and then, even with the busy holidays and your retail uptick, I would like to set up a time where I can meet you and tinker with the generator.
I am no ace small engine mechanic, but I suspect the carburetor is gummed up. Those gensets are supposed to be run under max load for an hour every month. Few people do that and the combination of disuse and ethanol gas, which attracts water; I have personally had lots of issues with this. I think with some fuel treatment in the tank, and us thoroughly cleaning the carb with Berryman B12, we might be able to get it running. Let’s talk about a day to give it a try.
