The Yamaha EF2500 portable generator uses a NGK spark plug #BPR6HS. Just bought on this week at the local NAPA store to replace the old spark plug in my generator.

What is the type of sparkplug do I buy and the gap for a rualking generator

Sorry I would love to help you but I have never heard of rualking generator. You also may want to put the hp or size of a the motor in your questiono.. The closest generator that doesn't come close to the name of yours is Rural King. I am guessing you don't have the old plug. If you do any parts store can cross reference the number on the plug. Good luck.

I have a generator but i can;t find what type it is, it starts first time and then dies after 2 mins

If the fuel system is all clean and working properly, (including the carburetor), make sure that the gas tank vent is open and that the fuel valve (if present) is open all the way.

Yg2800i generator runs for about 5 minutes and then stalls

Put a new fuel filter on it and when it stalls take the fuel line off the carburetor to check if gas is getting to the carburetor. If it is remove the sparkplug put the wire on it and ground the nut of the plug on the engine block and pull the cord and check for spark between the sparkplug gap. If no spark you might have a faulty coil, when it gets hot it has no spark.

Hard to start at first then pipe gets red hot where it attaches to motor. also backfires when trying to start intermittantly

Could be a host of things from poor valve tolerances, wrong jets in carburetor, wrong range sparkplug, type of fuel used or a loose stator assembly. Has the top end been maintained? Is compression good? Correct oil type and level? Using the muffler or not? Header dented? Is it serviced regularly?
Retarded timing will run the exhaust hotter than normal and backfire easily, will also ruin valves, piston, rings and cylinder bore.
Take generator cover off and check stator housing and pick-up coil are not loose or show signs of movement in any way.
Check condition of carby jets and replace with stock # or one size larger. Check inlet manifold for air leaks or cracks as too lean a motor will burn valves/piston crown. If this is not the cure, your problem should be left to a mechanic with 4 stroke experience.

Can I convert a Yamaha EC 5000DV generator to electric start? Where can I get those parts. rich

You can convert it BUT.... It will require spending almost as much on parts and shipping as this generator is worth.

You will need a new flywheel. Wiring harness for the start circuit, Key / switch assy, modified contgrol panel, Starter & solenoid, mounting bolts, a battery and battery holder. Additionally you will will need a voltage requlator.
Each of the parts will have to be special ordered from a Yamaha service center type shop. There is not a kit form for your unit. Depending on exactly which engine you have the 357 CC or the 410 CC you may not even be able to do it at all.

I just looked into doing the same thing for a Robin RGV 6100. "The dealers have you by the private parts!!!" The cost was about $200.00 less than buying a new generator of the equal size with an electric start system. The only thing I would not have had to buy for that conversion would be the regulator due to it being an inverter generator type unit.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I Have a pro force 6000 that has no spark at the

First check and see if you have any cracks on the cable then replace the sparkplug with new one but make sure that the setting the correct one…before you do this you may try a test but you must be very careful…No kids around, clear place outdoors, etc .
After checking, the cables unscrew the sparkplug and put very small amount of gas in then put back the sparkplug “the same one” and see if you get a sound as backfire if yes that mean it is working good. That should take care of it…let me know and again be very careful and not too much gas

Yamaha EF1000 Will only idle and produce 12VAC

My guess would be that some failsafe is in action here. It is possible that either a fuse OR the breaker is bad, or is not resetting in the case of the breaker button. Yamaha likes to idiot proof these things. Some of them disable the sparkplug if the oil gets low. Forget about just a warning light.
