Clean all the ports and jets with some torch tip cleaners or mechanics wire cut at an angle to be sharp.

Make sur ethe fuel filter is not clogged, or the sreen in the tank.

Also empty the tank and dry it out, then add fresh fuel as gasoline goes bad.

When checking the oil on the motor should the dip stick be screwed in for the correct oil level or just setting in the hole??


For Honda engine, just set in opening (unless it has a push-in dipstick like on auto ),

Briggs, most models, and other brands best to thread in unless stated in manual.

If oil cap is very close to base of engine and does not have an oil level marker, then fill to top thread (many older engines that did not have oil senser).

Where can I find an owners manual for a Black Max 8125/ Honda GX390 OHV generator? I searched Honda's site but not there, no black max site. My lawn guy pulled a wire off and I need to see where it is...


low oil sensor will not cause the motor not starting.
most likely is th ground wire.
you can try to attach that wire to any surface and try to start it. of it start, then you have to dis-assemble the head and find out where the wire should be attached.
if not, the wire is attached to a hot side. either way you have to dis-assemble the head.
