1st check you have set the Air Mixture screw correctly. It should be 1.5 turns from tight (done up). This is the most common problem.

If it still runs rough I suspect it will be a break in the carb gasket allowing too much air in.

If you need more advice you can chat with an engineer on our site. Parts Spares for Generators and Small Engine Machinery

Generator will run off of ether if you spray it. So I'm' getting spark an everything but it won't run on its own. Good fuel and filter, clean carb. Low oil pressure sensor maybe???

Pressure sensor not likely because that usually cuts spark not fuel, because fuel much harder to manipulate. Does the float chamber fill with gas? If not, the tank, filter, or float valve is clogged. If it does fill, then take the carb off, and use a blowgun to run compressed air down the throat. Does that **** out fuel? If not, then the main jet is clogged. Fine wire can be used to unclog it, or back flush it with compressed air. Most main jets are removable brass. I could give more is you tell us what make and model generator, 2 stroke or 4, etc.?

Run fuel line from truck tank to 13hp honda engine

This will work if the 13hp engine has its own fuel pump to draw fuel from the tank. Sounds like a good idea, use as mush steel line as possible to prevent line damage and associated leaks.

Hi, Honda HRG465C Petrol Mower running problem

The first thing to check is the spark plug, is it clean and properly "Gapped" next is are we actually getting spark, does the spark plug actually "Spark". Check. Check Spark Plug lead., Check connections. Do we have Fuel, Check .and Is the fuel getting to the Carburettor? Check. Check the battery. alternator, generator, is providing power. Check the Mixture.

Generator runs for around 10 mins. then stops why?

1) Check tank fuel cap for any vent holes being plugged or rubber components that are distorted.
2) Check fuel shut off valve for being plugged with debris or rust.
3) Remove fuel line at carb to see if fuel is flowing freely.

My 13hp honda generator won't run.I have cleaned the fuel bowl,new plug,air cleaner,evan removed air cleaner assembly off side of engine,I can get it to start,after much cranking,but it will not run for...

You cleaned the fuel bowl? Was there any dirt, etc, in it? How does the fuel line look? How about the bottom of the fuel tank? How old is the fuel?

From your description, it 'sounds' like a fuel system problem. If it's a Honda EU3000is, it has Electronic Ignition, and electronic ignition usually just goes out all the way, not slowly.

The fuel line is small, and easily obstructed. Does fuel flow when the fuel line is removed from the carburetor? After the generator starts, runs, then dies, remove the float bowl. How much gas is present?

Observe the float. See if it's in good repair.
Check the float needle. See if the rubber (Neoprene) tip is squished, or is still in good shape.
Could be that when gas fills the float bowl, the float raises, then gets stuck in the up position, cutting off the gas flow.
