There is a diagram under the hood showing how the belt is to be run (incase you forget) when you remove the old belt. There is a harmonic balancer pulley below and to the right of the alternator. Using a long handled socket wrench (I usually use my 1/2 inch drive) move the pulley which removes the tension on the belt. Remove the belt and replace. When the belt had been replaced make sure to check that the new belt is centered on each pulley, then return the pulley to it's normal place. The tension does not need to be set...it is self-adjusting.
there are lots of replacements out there you just need the size. and type. they have been used for years on meany types of tanks. plastic/ metal. you can even take the old one off and take to a parts bay for motor bikes or lawn mowers they can match it by eye then.
Hello John, Your gas more than likely has gone bad. If you have spark and good compression and it won't start then chances are the gas has gone bad. Today's gas contains about 10% ethanol, which is absolutely terrible for small engines. Gas with ethanol has a max shelf life of about 90 days under perfect conditions. A month or less is more realistic. Here is the problem, ethanol absorbs water and sits at the bottom of the tank in the generator. If You have a 5 gallon tank With 10% ethanol then 10% times 5 gallons equals half a gallon of water saturated ethanol sitting at the bottom of the tank, I don't care what kind or how good an engine it is, it won't run on water saturated alcohol. Here is a great video explaining it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeCyFxoWPpo So what I would suggest is to drain the tank and the carburetor bowl of all the old gas. Replace the bowl and check for leaks. While everything is empty I would suggest that you replace the fuel line with a Tygon line. Tygon is resistant to ethanol. I would also ad a see through inline fuel filter and a new spark plug. After this is all done, put in a small amount of gas, less then a half gallon and see if she fires up. If it fires up right away you should be all good to go. Let the generator run until it's completely empty. And store it empty. Here are some problems and solutions that I have for gas with ethanol. I live in Savannah Georgia and the high humidity during the summer can ruin the gas in my lawn tractor in less than 2 weeks due to water saturation. The tractor is almost impossible to start and runs terribly until the remaining gas is used up. I have stopped filling the tank completely and I use just enough gas to cut the lawn then I store the tractor almost empty. I also use gas cans made by a company called Blitz. These containers are pretty much airtight and do not allow the ethanol to absorb water. This has made a tremendous difference in engine performance. Another thing that you can do is to check out this website http://pure-gas.org/ If you are lucky , you might have a gas station that sells gasoline without any ethanol added. This type of gas has a much longer shelf life and if a product like Stabil is added, you might get over a year of safe storage of gas for your generator. Municipal airports have banned ethanol in aviation gas and so have most marina's. It might cost a little more but it sure is worth it when the lights go out. If you can't find pure gas then I suggest you store gas in the Blitz containers for about 3 to 4 months. If you don't need to use the generator then use the gas in your car and refill the Blitz tanks again. Better safe than sorry. I hope this helps and if it does would you please be so kind and give me a positive rating for my solution. Good luck and thank you, Michael Burke.
Replace battery with your choice of 12v products considering physical size, amp range and warranty. Lawn tractor batteries seem to have the least life/duty cycle. There are two methods of charging the battery used by Coleman. One is to charge the battery with charger/alternator coils installed under flywheel of the engine and second is to charge with built-in circuit in generator itself. Examine your wiring diagram to discover which you have. Simple test with volt meter will show if system is charging. Test voltage at battery with engine off, then start engine and retest looking for slightly higher voltage indicating charge. The charging system is like a trickle charger and not like your auto with initially high amp charge then taper to minimum. If your run your generator for long periods of time and you feel that the battery is being overcharged, then rig a switch to stop charging after one hour or longer. Good holiday
While there may be a governor, I doubt that is the problem. It is more likely just the linkage to the carburetor. And you don't have to take the engine out to get to the carb. Take the air cleaner off, and examine the carb butterfly. There is a choke fast idle cam that is probably not in the correct position.
I have a Ford LGT with a 14 hp Kohler K321AS engine. Go to Kohler.com and download the service manual for the K321 engine. The manual covers all of the K type engines and gives diagrams and details of all the different types of ignition and electrical systems. It is free.
Make sure you are getting spark from the coil. Then connect the coil wire to the distributor. Then check a plug wire for spark by grounding it with a screw driver. If you are getting spark from the coil, but not from the distributor wire there could be a wire broke in the distributor.
thats a great question and i am wondering the same thing i weight in at about 240 and it seems to ride fine beside the noises it make but im thinkin the noise is because it is brand new... i have heard nothing about weight limits and read the entire manual and read nothing about weight limits so im assuming there is no limit .....
