SOURCE: fuel supply

no. the generator fuel is gravity feed.
you can install a fuel pump, but then you going to need additional wiring and hardware.

SOURCE: New Onan 4000 watt gas RV generator cuts out

The generator engine is jetted for sea level. When you run at 24 hundred feet, it's flooding out. That's what you smell. The carb will need to be jetted for high altitude.

SOURCE: I try to start the generator today (rope pull

! - Do not try to start it.. With all that gas, could literally blow up.

Sounds like the fuel system is not controlling the gas flow. If Carburator, float valve is stuck open. If it's fuel injected, then the diaphram in the flow control maybe rotted out or otherwise malfuctioning, in both cases, allowing the gas to drain down into the manifold, running into the cylinders, and seep into the oil sump past the pistion rings.

Drain and replace the oil, after looking carefully at the fuel supply system.

I need a battery for a predator portable generator

Go to WalMart and look at their EverStart line of batteries for motorcycles and ATV's. I have the 8750/7000 watt predator and the EverStart ES9BS works great and fits well on the holder. It comes with the acid and you will need to add the acid and fully charge the battery before use.;

I need to remove the gas tank from a honda generator eu3000is.

I have a ems 4500 honda, the gas tank looks like the upper bar needs to be removed to get the gas tank off, it does. Follow the
top bar down on each of the corners. Where the top bar meets with the bar below the gas tank, you will find a bolt in each of the tubes. Take these screws out, use a hammer to tap the top bar upward lightly at each corner. You should see the tubing sliding up out of the bottom tubes.
