Question about Ingersoll Rand SS3J5.5GB Wb Ir Portable Air Compressor 5.5HP Briggs & Stratton Gasoline Engine 8 Gal Twin k Single Stage Wheelbarrow

Open Question

Briggs & Stratton 135212/0129

I have this engine on a Homelite HL2500 generator. I have no idea where to start with the various settings. After monkeying with it for 2 hours I managed to get it to idle consistently. I let it run for about 20 minutes but it was not turning enough RPM to produce any power. When I try adjusting the RPM with the fixed throttle adjustment it dies when I increase the RPM. What is the initial setting for the "non-adjustable" idle screw? What is the initial setting for the throttle linkage? What is the run position for the throttle linkage? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

SOURCE: starting problem/turning self off

Follow the copper airline that leads from the compressor to the tank and you will find the pilot valve. This brass valve controls the pressure setting and also controls the engine. There is a small flip lever on top of the pilot valve that unloads the compressor for easy starting when there is pressure in the tank. Raise the lever straight up for start and lay to side for normal run cycle. When the compressor fills tank to set level, the pilot valve pops and idles the engine. If engine stalls raise idle by turning the idle screw clockwise at the carb. The arm that you see under the tank is the governor control arm. To increase the engine speed when pumping turn speed control screw counter clockwise. Sometimes the throtle control cable must be adjusted by loosening the clamp that holds the cable (black cable) at the engine and pulling the cable back away from the clamp and re-clamp. Hope this helps, good luck.

Briggs & Stratton 12KW Model 040229 LPG Generator. 96 Volts @ the 120 Volts outlet, When I turn the house 2 Ton AC voltage increase to 106 Volts.


Can you manually adjust the voltage on the generator without load?? If you have 120/240 60hz output on it and you are not overloading the unit (amperage), then it may be as simple as adjusting whats called your gain setting for your voltage regulator. Obviously you are seeing what happens when it is set too low. Trying raising that setting until it becomes unstable then back it off. Unstable meaning voltage starts jumping all over.
