Question about Hobart Welders 500433 Champion? 10,000 All-in-One 10,000-Watt Generator
I know this is an old post, but I just had this same situation. Inherited a unit from my father in law and it had be sitting about a year. I drained the gas tank (disconnect fuel line and pressurize tank inlet with shop vac) and flushed out fuel lines and replace fuel filter, air filter, oil and filter. Cleaned and lubricated all carb and choke mechanisms. Sprayed a bunch of carb cleaner and let it soak. Put in fresh gas. Cranked and cranked and cranked. Did not start right away, but stuck with it. I put some gas in a syringe used for injecting meat (just so you know the size) and remove everything above the carb venturi. Put about 1 cc of gas directly in the carb and cranked. it started and ran until that gas burned up (about 2 seconds). It ran ok but wasn't getting fuel so I suspected the fuel pump. Kept at it and repeated this about 15 to 20 times and noticed that it would run just a wee but longer each time. Until finally it caught and ran strong. Put everything back and it is in great shape. Hope that helps. Also, I noticed there was quite a bit of moisture in the muffler. This sputtered out until it got out enough to evaporate it all out. I now keep it covered when not in use - something I am not sure my father in law did.
