30W OIL, take old plug to store customer service will match. Parts: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/powermate-generator-parts-c-117046_130613.html?gclid=COe1kb_yi80CFZGJaQodXvYMXg Info: look on valve cover "DOHC" marked. On the side is the model number for the engine. Search on that model number for engine parts.
on the plate attached to the motor you will find several important items
one is the wattage of the motor
this is the maximum wattage that the motor uses when under load
the gen set will need to be at least 30% bigger than that figure
next there will the number of phases that the motor is
it will read as 1 ph or 3ph
If it is 1ph that is a single phase motor and will ru from a single phase gen set
however if it is 3ph you will need a 3ph gen set to run the motor
As most single phase motors are limited to around 5hp I would be very sure that the motor is not 3ph
specialist advice from an accredited electrician or electrical motor shop is recommended before buying a gen set. as if you need 3ph the gen sets become expensive.
if you're talking RESISTIVE (like incandescent light bulbs and radiant electric heaters), then you need about a 20KW generator. If you're talking REACTIVE (like electric motors and fluorescent lights), then you need a 40KW to 100KW generator - higher if you're starting all the motors at once, lower if you're stage-starting the motors. If you're talking about a mix of resistive and reactive loads, then you'll need something between 20KW and 100KW depending upon the mix.
If you're talking about MAXIMUM 19100W but realistically only a small part of that load is actually likely to be required at any given moment, then you can use a much smaller generator. For example, my own house has a 100A 240V breaker panel, for a total capacity of 24KW. I can realistically run what I REQUIRE from a 3.5KW generator, though, by intelligent load switching.
When the compressor starts, initially there is a very large current draw by the compressor motor. Depending on the size of the generator and compressor motor, this could cause the generator to stumble for a few seconds, but this should smooth out within 3-5 seconds.
there are lots of replacements out there you just need the size. and type. they have been used for years on meany types of tanks. plastic/ metal. you can even take the old one off and take to a parts bay for motor bikes or lawn mowers they can match it by eye then.
Your cutter machine may use more power than your whole house depending on the size of motor. A one horsepower motor 115v will use about 3000 watts to start and about 1000watts to run. To estimate how much power you need, add up all the watts that you will use at home and add to that estimated wattage of the cutter motor (motor will use 3x rated wattage to start plus loss of power thru the extension cord). Buy a generator that will give you needed power and still have a 25 percent reserve. If you need 2000 watts on a continued basis, the 2800 watt may be good, however I would be more comfortable with a 3500 watt if the price was right because of the cutter machine. I would consider converting the cutter to gas power and buy a smaller generator to save on gas since you will be most likely running the generator far longer to power the house. Good luck
