Question about Briggs Stratton H7159 & Stratton® 5500, 10 HP Generator
Started the generator to let it run for a few minutes. Oil was pouring out thru the engine.
If you have good spark, clean air filter (replace anyways), try choking it half way or so. If it runs better, then it is running too lean, probably a clogged orifice or jet in the carb. If choking it makes it run worse, then it is likely running too rich. Could be a float problem, or metering tube that is clogged and isn't spraying.
