In the process of using diesel generator set, soft rubber pipe is easy to rub with the parts around it, and it is easy to wear and tear oil leakage in the long run. However, most of the fuel supply system of diesel generator set uses soft rubber tube, so it is not easy to find the oil leakage point. Below are instructions provided by Starlight Power small make up to teach you a few diesel generator unit pipeline leak spot check method.

Method one: exhaust the air from the diesel generator unit, then start the unit to find out the leak point.

Method two: release the gas screw of the unit injection pump and release the oil from the hand oil pump. If it is found that the discharge screw starts to discharge a large amount of bubble oil, and the bubble still does not disappear after the repeated hand pump, it can be determined that there is a leak point in the low pressure oil pipeline from the oil tank to the oil pump section. The pipeline should be removed, pressure gas and placed in water, to find out where the bubble is the leak point.

insure the wires from the magneto are not cracked or shaved as this would discharge to earth and the ht lead from the magneto to the plug is not perished as this would create leakage to earth

With regrets, I do not have any personal experience with generator troubleshooting. However, I have been informed by some people that have good experience with them that a generator needs to be run for a couple of hours every month to keep the system in proper order. Should a generator sit idle for ten months, the fuel can actually "shellac" inside the carburetor and lines. This will then travel to areas that will gum up - thus the necessity to drain the tank and carburetor completely.
Here is their advice:
Your service person(s) may not be aware of the time the unit sits idle, and if they are aware - then they are not giving you straight facts (in my opinion). I would suggest contacting Honda customer service directly, and explain this situation to them - they will probably be more then happy to have a technician assist you properly. Contact the 'customer relations' number, and they will direct you from there. Here is the link:

I am sorry I couldn't be of more help.

No, as with most small equipment engines, the culprit is the carburetor. You'll need to soak it in carb cleaner overnight in a sea;ed container and install the rebuilt kit for it.

I assume you refer to a 6500 watt Honda, if it's electric start/and manual(pull cord) First supply a 12 volt battery /if you haven't put fresh gas in it do the best you can to remove all the old gas from the tank and you should find drain screws and small hoses on the lower part of the carburetor. After completing this step add about 1 gallon or so of fresh gas, remove the air filter system from the face of the carburetor ,with a small squirt bottle put a tea spoon or so of gas into the of the carb, close the choke and turn the key, if it fires let it run with the choke closed for only a few seconds then slowly open the choke fully, if the engine stalls close the choke and start the engine again do not leave the choke closed for extended periods as this will cause engine flooding and spark plug failure. Also be sure you have inspected the existing spark plug to be sure it's clean if there is any question about the plug change it.
