    I am pulling on the rope, my model does not have electric start. The plug is good, the fuel was drained before storage. Oil has been changed.

There will not be any spark to the plugs unless the engine is running, or you are manually pulling on the rope.

Go to any auto parts store and get a can of starter fluid, a new spark plug and a new air filter. Pour out the old fuel and mix up a new batch. While at the store also get a small bottle of homelite 2 cycle oil to mix with the gasoline.

Install the new plug and pour in the new fuel mix. Leave the air filter off and squirt some starter fluid into the air intake as you pull the starter rope. It helps to have this be a two person job.

Homelite hgn 0960a generator wont start no spark

Change Spark Plug. Check The starting Switch with a Multitester if it have continuity.Start it again and check Spark with the spak plug unplugged and with the crankcase check the spark.
Check the oil level. almost all the new and modern generators have included an oil alert gadget that cut off for saving the engine.check oil level and refill if it need.start it again.

Won't start. changed gas. oil is okay. added fuel additive. new spark plug.

Ensure choke is turned on while starting.
Ensure spark lead is fully pushed onto plug.
Remove spark plug and check there is a spark by keeping spark plug against body of engine and cranking engine, if no spark check there are no broken wires in ignition circuit.
Loosen bolt on float bowl. Fuel should start leaking from around top rim of bowl, if it doesn't then there is a restriction somewhere in fuel line or float valve is blocked in bowl.

Homelite portable generator, out put fr unit..has been discontinued fr a few parts available..known fr circuit board dad's , maby 50hr on can I bypass..or obtain...

If the engine is running but no output from the plugs....the VERY common problem is loss of magnetism in the generator after storage.
With the generator off.........
Look at the side of the generator you see a small + and - on any terminals?
You may have to take a cover off.
Take a 9 volt battery and momentarily put current from this small battery through these terminals.
Now.....start her up and check for power at the plugs.
This fixes 75% of "no output" after being "stored" generators.
