surging at idle indicates air in the pump affecting the governor operation
or
low fuel pressure in the pump having the same affect
Call a cat service agent and discuss the propblem

Why is it surging under load?


Yep - the carb needs to be removed and cleaned out thoroughly to remove the clogging responsible for the surging. Motor needs a smooth supply of gas - look at what your car does when you jerk around with the gas pedal. Also check the governor area of generator since that keeps motor running at a certain fixed speed. If there is something wrong with it, that will also cause the problemo.

TRANSMISSION


Fuse # 20 or 21 gets power through ignition. This fuse controls PRNDL indicator, speedometer, tach, & will cause transmission to not shift gears correctly. Ours took off in 3rd gear when put in Overdrive & only ran in 3rd gear. If we tried to manually shift thru gears (auto trans), it had 1st, 3rd, reverse. No 2nd or over drive. Replaced ignition. Fixed problem. Root problem was Electric motor that engaged 4 wheel low side was bad. Every time we used 4 Low side it threw power surge through ignition & blew ignition out. Good Luck.

The generator kicked the breaker of and was smoking and smelled like electrical


What type of load (electrical) was hooked up to this generation?? If the surge voltage and current was exceeded above the generator maximum for any length of time. There problems, it could be the regulator, insulation burnt off the windings.


I am taking a guess here. Now, 7100 Watts is it typical surge wattage. This mean that the generator will deliver 7100 Watt (voltage times current) this is know as the power factor. The actual operating load would be 6800 Watts and I would even operator the generator at its peak wattage. Something in the neighborhood of 10--15% less the peak wattage. Therefore a good positive theatrical Wattage would be 5800 to 6350 operating wattage. Then this generator would run all day.



Just remember Ohm's Law. Current plays a big factor in loading of a generator while the operation voltage is at 120 AC Volts. Example: electric motor; Now electric motor when starting will pull three time its operation current. Operating current for a 1/2 HP AC motor is 6 amperes but start this electric motor will require 18 amperes. This is one reason why they starting capacitors on smaller electric motors. Larger three phase electric motor can literal stop a generator cold...in its tracks. It put such a large demand on the generator it stops the engine powering the generator. I have seen crankshaft break because the generator could handle the heavy current load.



Remember, any time you are running a small gas powered generator. All ways figure what the load and surge current load will be before hooking up any generator. Normally this is figured in VA (volt/amps). Wish you lock. GB...stewbison

My surges as I go up a hill,in cruise. But not if I put it in 3rd gear. Whats wrong?


This sounds like it has a vacuum leak. The reason it doesn't happen in 3rd gear, the motor is turning faster.
Do any other vacuum controlled items stop working at the same time? Like change to the defroster, or from floor vent to dash vent.
