Funny nobody has got an idea about how to fix a problem like this. Well now I reassembled the generator, checked all connections, blew through all fuel lines including the carburator with compressed air, assemled and it started at once!!! Might be a tip for someone else........

If this is one of the big "taco cart" portables you need to check that the vent on the gas cap is open when you're running the engine. In the center of the gage on the gas cap is a little knurled knob, turn it counter clockwise (lefty loosey), about a half turn or so and run the generator.
If that doesn't solve your problem add to it here, otherwise please give me a rating I'm trying to build a little credibility here and could use the help.

SOURCE: Stale Fuel in gas tank
go to any auto parts store and get one of the products they have to remove the gum in the carburator and line. Some of the products are simply poured into the gas tank along with some fresh gas. good luck.

It could be the transmission range switch is bad. Try starting in neutral instead of park. Jiggle the shift lever in park and/or neutral while trying to start. If this works, you'll want to change out the switch. If not, note that the transmission range switch allows power to operate a coil in the starter cut out relay which latches contacts closed thus sending power to the starter solenoid. The starter cut out relay could be bad--its located on the backside of the driver's kick panel fuse block. You could check the relay coil with your ohm meter.

The plenum problem should not affect compression tests. It allows oil to get sucked into the intake and will cause carbon buildup, plug fouling, and pinging. If you have zero compression on a cylinder, it is usually a valve problem. Even a burned piston will make some compression, unless it has a big hole in the middle.
Sorry, but if your compression results are to be trusted (and it seems they are), then you have to tear a head off to find the problem, or at least get a borescope in it.
