SOURCE: adjusting valves on xp4400e duromax generator

we do not have this brand here in Pakistan but usually adjustment of valve is a little tricky
at the back side of the generator just next to spark plug there is a metal box with 4 bolts and a rubber pipe which leads to air filter back plate.
remove the 4 bolts remove the cover very slowly to avoid damage to the seal.if you can get the seal then replace it when you are finally done.or i suggest you get grey silicone to apply it evenly a thin film to seal it when done.
now you will see two rocker tied with one shaft with a lock nut on it
remember to put the switch to off position as when you turn or pull the cord it may start.
take a visiting card or similar cardboard and insert it between the rocker end not the one with a thin shaft side.the play or gap should not be more than the card thickness for both the rocker which vary or give space wheb you turn the wheel slowly of pull the recoil gradually. you would need a set of spanners one to hold the lower nut and the other to loosen the top nut for adjustment and the tighten them the same way.
when you are done the put the cover back and fix two bolts to test or the oil spilling will ruin your cloth and give you hot oil bath.
the best adjustment will start the generator smoothly while if the recoil get tough then the setting needs to be loosen almost in the figure of 1/4 of a turn or lesser.
remember that the guide plate which has two big hole from where the rod passes should not have any cut or wear off. if it has then the plate has to replaced before the adjustment.
for removal of guide plate you would need a long nose ratchet as it would not be easier to open the special bolts with nut built in.
hope this was helpful

Fuel mixing with oil and filling oil tank and cylinder.


the ethanol gas has a way of ruining the rubber tip on the needle valve (in carburetor). When the rubber tip on that valve or the rubber on the Seat go bad, gas can constantly want to fill the carburetor bowl. so much so that it runs into the engine cylinder and past the Rings to the crankcase.
You can replace the needle valve and seat in the carb which is best OR you can put an in-line shutoff on the fuel line and turn it off when you are not using the generator.
Ethanol gas.. very very bad for carburetors.
