Question about Northstar Generator 9 Hp, 5500 Watt, Gasoline
9 years old , it's been in storage since the y2k scare. never been used,hasn''t even had fuel in it till today. It seems to want to start, there is a little smoke coming out but it won't kick over.
Ok, try and take the bowl off and clean it out with some carb cleaner. Also open the carb top and shoot carb cleaner down it for several seconds repeatedly. If it has never been used it still was started and tested at the factory. It has gunk build up on the nedle and is probably stuck. This happens to alot of carbs even sitting for only a few years. Just take the carb apart as much as you feel comfortable with and spray carb cleaner all through it. Move the movable parts alittle and then try it. It has to work . P.S. Look in the gas tank and see if there is any rust in it. If so you need to pour some deisel fuel in it and sloush it around and dump it.
