Question about McCulloch 13HP 338 Cc Portable Generator # FG6000MK
I took the carb totally apart, totally cleaned jets and blew out with compressed air. Cleaned the gas filter, checked the diapham and all checks good. There is a small black filter(?) on the vacum line that lets air in slow to the diapham valve which I might replace next.
This unit was bought new after Katrina Sept '05 and ran for 2 weeks then. Always ran the gas out of carb and started several times a year. I ran it for Gustav for 3 days and it started surging the 4th day and got worst as time went on. I changed the plug nothing. If you hold the governor on the alternater at idle it runs fine. Once you let it go it goes to half speed and starts to surge every 10-15 seconds. Saturday I played around with the choke flapper and throttle by hand and it stopped surging and ran good. I started it again Sunday same surge and played with the choke and throttle again and it quit. I'm afraid this thing might fail when I need it most. By the way my unit is a FG6000MK a 11HP and the motor is a Wenling Jennfeng (read they bought McCulloch). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
It sounds like the govener screw needs to be adjusted by turning it clockwise and then you may have to tweek the throttle screw. hopefully that will take care of it.

I just came across this post. Hopefully you have it solved. But for others who may run into this problem here is my advice. This model has a low oil sensing system. Over time the oil breaks down or gets contaminated. This can cause sympoms very akin to carb issues. I'd check this 1st as its the easiest fix. Drain and replace oil to the factory recommended specs. Make sure it is to the proper level. Your not finding any carb issues makes this almost a sure thing. DO NOT DISCONNECT or DISABLE the sensor or you defeat its purpose.
