Question about Electrical Supplies
10 Hp Tecumseh
Model # gt5250-2
Neighbor left this gen under his deck for 4 years covered. Motor runs after new carb. When I start the motor up it goes to maxium rpm but get nothing from the generator. Governor is wide open on the motor, and i can control it by pushing on it. Its like its being told give me all you got. But still no juice. Thank You Angel Starr
Hello, you might try this really simple solution called flashing the field. If it sat that long, the residual magnetism that is in the field coil might have completely dissipated therefore producing no electricity. Here is the link on how to do it.http://www.perr.com/tip16.html
If this solution has helped you, would you please give my solution a positive rating. Thank you, Michael Burke

You will need to install new diodes,they are located in the plastic housing behind the receptacles...It looks like little spark plugs..They work to put dc voltage to the rotor,without the exciter voltage applied,you will not get ac power out..The part number is 3483.01....You can buy these online for about $6 each,they have 2 inside the generator,and you should change both.
