The brushes need to be filed smooth or replaced. 15 minute job, remove 2 bolts on the generator cover ( side opposite the pull start ). Remove 2 more bolts holding a black plastic thing about 4 inches long on the left. Behing that piece, there is 1 bolt holding in the brushes ( red and white wire attached ). Remove the brushes and if they're not smooth, file down and reconnect everything. I was done in 15 minutes in the middle of Maine woods thanks to my Leatherman.

No, not the filter, you will need to try to prime the carb better then with starting fluid, pour some gasoline down the carb, you may have to do this a few times, but everything will fire back up again once you get the air out of the system
