I have a 2001 Dodge Stratus and awhile ago I switched the plugs to a Autolite plug. Then I decided there might a problem and went back to the Champion plugs.


I believe the factory originals are champion brand, and would have been platinum, but it should still run decent with the coppers. The only thing I can think of is they are of the wrong gap. Copper plugs do not come pre- gapped at all and need to be done by installer. The gap for your stratus, if it's a 4 cylinder is .050. Wrong gap will cause no power and shaking. Correct champion number in copper is #443, and should say that on the box/plug.

I have an old champion electric lawn mower that is VERY noisy can I oil it & where?


It's probably a bad bearing, you can try to remove it, then look on the bearing race for numbers and letters, and try to track that particular bearing down on the Internet. It may be too much work or money to fix though, most things are pretty much disposable these days.

My champion generator model #46596 will run but won't give electric


All breakers OK? Then it could be lost exciter current. Her's how to restore it - Connect 16 or 18 gauge wires to a 12 volt battery. With the generator running, insert bare wire ends into the AC outlet - one wire to Hot, the other to Neutral. Insert and remove quickly - there should be a flash and power will be restored. If not, repeat until you get that flash. If you are too slow to remove the wires from the outlet after current is restore, the light gauge wire should burn out before the battery suffers damage. Be quick - be careful.

Electrical diagram for 8000lb champion winch


Winches are out in the worst weather so before I looked at a wiring diagram I would be checking the condition of all the terminals for clean and tight. Next check the charge rate and condition of the battery driving the winch even having a load test done on that battery to see if all the cells are ok as when the solenoid clicks but no more the results are the same as a bad battery in the car.

Do you know what the proper Champion part number is for a Toro 51972 weed trimmer is? This was purchased used and it had a RCJ4 Champion plug in it and I just need to verify that this is the correct plug....


that is the correct spark plug for the unit. i work at a power equipment store where we work on homelites. 90% of the time it wont start or run right is usually carb issues . need to get it rebuild or replaced

Low current. Will hardly drive a sander or lights. Voltage guages says 120V. Unit is 3 years old but has maybe 10 hours of use max


I found this at http://www.championpowerequipment.com/tech-bulletins/
AVR Voltage Adjustment

This bulletin covers the following Champion Power Equipment models:

C46535 C41150 C41365

C46540 C41155 C75520E

C49055 C41255 C71350E

Note: Read instructions completely before performing service.

1. On the end of the generator locate the round yellow cover held on by two 7mm bolts.

Remove the two bolts and the yellow cover will come right off.

2. At approximately 7 o'clock you'll see a kidney shaped electrical component called the AVR,

which is held on by two 7mm bolts. Remove the two bolts but do not disconnect the wiring

and turn the AVR over so you can see the backside. You should see a round part coming off

the AVR, this is the capacitor. You should also see a small rectangular box with a jewelers

screw, this is your voltage adjustment screw.

3. With a flat head screw driver turn the jewelers screw counter clockwise and this will lower

the voltage. As the screw is turned back watch the volt meter to see adjustment, the

generator must be running to do this.

4. Adjust the screw until the meter reads 250 volts. On model C46540 when the toggle switch

is turned to the 120 side the volt meter should read around 130 volts. Optimum voltage is

121.8 volts.

5. If voltage does not decrease or does not hold a steady output please contact Champion at

877-338-0999 for a new AVR.

I have a Hobart Champion 10,000 welder generator. It runs but I am getting no juice out of it. Won't weld or put out power to run anything.


measure ouput on ALL available sockets - anything?
Take cover off electric motor-generator, visually inspect windings.
Measure continuity of all stator windings (2 or 3 points usually)
Measure continuity of stator thru brushset.
If all measures ok - has to be AVR module.

There is no mistery in generator - just stator to induce and rotor to obtain voltage.
