Question about Electrical Supplies
SOURCE: Generator won't start
After removing the carb, disassembling and blowing it out (twice) to no avail, got a one gallon can of Gunk Parts and Carburetor dip. Removed the carburetor (again), removed float bowl cover, gasket, float, and needle valve and soaked it in the cleaner for several hours. Blew it out (again) and reinstalled it. Now generator starts on first pull like new!

I have a Robin but they all are pretty much the same for plug gap and tappets. I worked in a lawnmower small engine repair shop for many years in San Diego
I set them all the same and never had one return. I just did mine a couple of months ago and hand lapped the intake and exhaust valve seats. Starts first time everytime like the 7.5 year old unit is new!!!
Plug gap 0.19
Intake .005 cold
Exhaust .006 cold.

SOURCE: i have no fuel at
Make sure you have flow from the tank to the carburetor. Also, when you cleaned the carburetor, there are several jets that have to be open in order for the fuel to "flow" through the carburetor. The carburetor on this generator has a pilot jet located on the top side of the carburetor and a main metering jet that screws into the very bottom of the carburetor and will be visible when the bowl is removed. After the main jet is removed there is a main nozzle that also has holes in it that have to be open also.
Another problem that is possible is compression. If the engine does not have sufficient compression it will not "pull" the fuel into the combustion chamber on the intake stroke. Hope this helps to get you in the right direction.

Lets cut to the chase here.
I know the engine replacement part number is: 309591038..... BUT, I do not know what engine this is. There is an ENGINE number some where on this engine that I need to help you. Usually it is not to far from the oil dip stick area on the base of the engine. If you would plese pass me the engine number so I can help you.
