michael price: I was having trouble starting my generac 5500 after two years of not being
started, it has 10 hrs on it so it's still like new. I figured I'd have yo
take the carb apart and clean it until I saw your video and duh, it was
like duh, it took three attempts but on the third it cranked right up.
Thank you you saved me time and probably money cause I'd have gotten my
mechanic to do it probably because I am always too busy but this was easy,
wakefieldyorkshire: I will be receiving a Chinese import 3 phase generator powered by a clone
Honda GX390 engine in a few weeks, but after seeing a few youtubers vids on
Chinese assembled engines i dont know whether to strip down the engine
before i start it up and attempt to do a rebuild myself. Has anyone had a
poorly assembled engine from China, or am i just being over cautious, any
advice would be welcome.
Nice day to all of you, thanks for taking the time to read.
Jim Bris: Don,
I have a 3000watt Chinese generator that has been working with no problems.
Last month I went to pull the starter cord and it would not pull. I took
it off the generator and it pulled fine. Put it back on and it won't move.
It's like there's a brake keeping it from moving. Can you tell me what is
going on? Thank you
Jim from Pa.
scottso241: can i use wd40? for the chock?
Mark Moody: Fantastic help to me! Thanks! I subscribed!
Elante Ford: Do this work in the winter. I would like to see a video of that
USAEVANTOLICO: FOR AN AMERICAN OR EUROPEAN BUY A PIECE CHEAT CHINESE MOTOR THIS SHOW
THE EMPIRE GOING DOWN. THIS IS LIKE SECOND CLASS IN THE TRAIN.
Elante Ford: Do this work in the winter. I would like to see a video of that
Bryan Kinney: Good Video and Audio..and thanks for the CC on the part where the mic
dropped out..On my way to the auto parts store to get some of that spray.
brianca3: Hey I have a Titan 3750 industrial generator that I can't get started. Any
donyboy73: @Liamautomechanic i don't think they are made under licence from honda
Cody Run: donyboy. I have a ETQ Model: TG72K12 (7250 Continuous Watts) Do you show
how to change the oil in one like this? Also the electric start just clicks
and the battery shows fully charged on the trickle charger. thanks.
donyboy73: @syncmaster710n14 not familiar with diesel
mountfields: some folk shy away from "Chinese" clone engines, bought our genny 5 years
ago, has been very well used and been trouble free, very pleased, ( just
keep changing the oil), just because there cheap , doesn`t mean there
Bobby Hitt: Hey, Like your vids. very much and have learned a lot. Thanks! I have a
powercraft 1000 watt. It has the same throttle set up as this gen. I think?
anyway it starts on the first pull but then runs wide open for about 30
sec. and then stops. before it would run perfectly and pulsate. I when I
took it out to use this time the shaft the is located inside the spring had
come loose I put it back in but know I have the problem. can you help?
Garnett M.: Oh how I wish everyone would run an engine dry from fuel when storing ,
I`ve torn apart more carbs because of leaving old gas in it -When they
can`t start it next time --And you don`t need stabilizer if you drain the
system completely use the gas somewhere else new gas is always better for
an engine .
1972FordF150: 5 stars !!!!!
rahs98991: I own the same generator it got to where it wouldn't start at all after
buying three brand new plugs to no avail I finally bought a new E Core plug
just to try my generator starts every time first pull even in 5 degree
weather and even starts after it gets hot something the generator would
never do after using it for awhile I always had to let it cool down before
it would start again. The new E Core Plugs works wonders on stubborn motors
with starting problems
syncmaster710n14: Works brilliantly on my petrol gen but I also have a Chinese diesel
generator that has an electric start which is even worse for not starting
after awhile, any ideas on that?
eddievalleytrailer: Do you still have this generator? I have one just like it. The problem with
mine is there are 2 green wires under the gen cover (other end from the
starter rope) that seem to go nowhere. Does yours have 2 green wires under
the cover? Do they hook to anything or they just sitting there not
eddievalleytrailer: Wow!! That would be great!! Mine broke one of the brushes in the generator.
I took it apart a year ago and just now found new set for it. Now that I'm
ready to finally get it going again, I don't remember those green wires or
where they hook up or if they hook to anything. I really like this gen. It
was powerful, quiet and reliable until the brush broke.
DeepFriedFuzzball: @syncmaster710n14 I saw your comment on here, I have on of those diesels
but it's not attached to a generator and it's just pull start, but It
always starts great. If you're having trouble with yours, try bleeding the
injector line to make sure there's no air in it, and if that doesn't work
take out the injector and do a spray test on it to make sure it's working
right, sometimes they get a bit dirty and then the engine just don't wanna
run...hope that helps :]
hsb ashraf: i have same generator but it runs on half choke(the lever you pushed).what
is wrong plz answer!
Jason Brass: theres a thing called ether for a job like this!, itll make anything run
hp11208: Dony i bought a 900 watt generator from H-F tools,it starts and shuts off
steven earnshaw: If there is a giant hole in the crankcase, oil everywhere and a bit of
conrod sticking out. Why wont it start? Lol
Dominique Lapointe: Where did you get the Quaker State one Lube penetrating oil?, I can't seem
to find it anywhere
donyboy73: anywhere between .003-.005
that guy: runs like a pile of crap compered to ours
thiscreepingmalaise: I did all these steps but it keeps killing after a few seconds. HELP?
Ray Iglesias: Hello Donny: I just bought me a Honda Max Generator 3650-4550 watt.It is
being delivered to me and i can wait to use it for the various projects
i'll be using it for. Watching your videos on YouTube, has been a huge
blessing because you have taught me so much on these 4 cycle engines and
how to maintain them for long term use, i just want to thank you personally
for these lessons. If I ever take a trip to Canada, in the near future i
look you up to say hello. Your friend Ray from Missouri.
Liamautomechanic: are they made under license from honda?????????????in china,
donyboy73: i'll check but this gen is brushless I believe
70 Watt SPLPL90-3 LIDAR Jammers £160 Posted: It's the little Brass screw on the side, outwards gives it some more fuel,
sometimes they are tamper proof and cover can snap off, then use tweezers
if need be. You may HAVE A BLOCKED JET IN CARB.
Jihad Powell: is it loud i need something quiet
scotty1045: If your gonna store one for a while of through the winter put Stabill in it
and some B12 chemtool. Do not turn the gas off and run it till it quits.
That will cause the carb to dry out through the winter and you will for
sure have problems getting it started. I have 3 gens we use on our farm a
3500 to 550 watt and that is what I do in the winter.
4micaman: Thanks Don. I'm trying to get my '07 powermate 2500 running after leaving
fuel (untreated) in the tank and not clearing the carb before storing.
Lesson learned! My thinking is the carb is just gummed up but cleaning the
tank and trying to use wd40 as a starter didn't work. Manual or not, I'll
pull the carb bowl and go from there.
donyboy73: yes any penetrating oil, watch the fumes from the exhaust though that u do
not breathe them in
Simon's Channel: @Liamautomechanic no. tey clone Honda to sell more. because the guys that
dont know that much will say ''wow! a Honda at super cheap price'' this is
a trick to sell more
70 Watt SPLPL90-3 LIDAR Jammers £160 Posted: Good simple guide, and all Chink ones are basically the same as this guys.
Be very careful putting those back in bud, hold them up-away at first then
bring them down and slip them onto the 'pip' put bolt in, any sidewards
pressure can snap them off. The wires go red on left green on right or if
same colour (sorry color) just try them, doesn't damage anything.
syncdram2012: Generators should not be stored for long periods of time. They need to be
run at least, repeat at least once a month for 20 minutes with a load
plugged in so the generator side does not loose its capablility to charge
at 110v a/c. Most gen owners are not aware of this very important fact.
Things de magnatize in the generator itself leaving you with only a running
motor and no a/c voltage. Might want to consider this as well.
Shawn Hanrahan: I didn't have penetrating oil so I used carb cleaner spray and it worked
great, thanks for this video
donyboy73: on thosesometimes it is, sometimes the valves need to be adjusted
MultiChainsaw123: yes donyboy what is the overhead valve adjustment for a chinese generator
motor like the one you showed in your video 6.5 honda knock off thanks for
Dominique Lapointe: Hi, is there something else I could use like PB blaster penetrating
catalyst, its a penetrating oil. thanks
Kevin Isam: Wow thanks i had a prob starting my moms today but the gas was on and i
turned it off it has the same shut off as this guys and its all rusted so i
cant see it
donyboy73: yes I have it still, I will check for you
the Unrepentant: To start a lawnmower or rototiller motor I use carb cleaner. Just a very
small puff on the air filter and the motor starts on the first pull without
smoke coming out of the exhaust even after sitting over the winter.
