Question about Electrical Supplies
I have an old Honda EM1500 it starts no problem but not producing voltage I think it is the avr but unable to buy a new one due to it's age, so looking at replacing the capacitor but the details have worn off. Any ideas what capacitor to use?

As far as I can tell on the wiring diagram for this generator there is no voltage regulator unless it's incorporated with the auto throttle unit.
To lower the voltage you need to lower the speed of the generator engine. To do this there should be a screw on top of the engine under the tank when your facing the recoil. This screw presses on a arm that controls your governor. Turning it in (righty tighty) will increase rpms, turning it out will lower them. You should see the voltage change on the voltmeter.

Cummins P2200, 2KWatt, it starts fine, but after a couple of minutes, it gives quite high voltage output, meter needle goes beyond 300v, engine speed seems high since throttle is increased, indicator light on generator also becomes bright, after a minute or so, things come to normal, sometimes takes few minutes to come to normal, situation is same, with/without output load. this happens within initial 15 minutes after startup, afterward everything is normal.

At the controller, you need to see if it is actually sending electricity out of the Generator/Alternator, have a look where the leads from the power making unit mates, (Think of it as a motor in reverse) onto the board. There should be an AC Voltage there, then, work back, or out from there, trace the Voltage until it stops, thats the problem... Check the Breaker isn't tripped or faulty too.
