Well, it's stored on the porch behind a friend's
home. That's the home connection.
A friend of mine has a Yamaha EC-2800 generator
which won't start. We cleaned out th gas tank,
used a towel to soak up all the green water
slime from the bottom of the tank. He then
took apart the carb bowl, dried out the carb
bowl. Says he bought new carb for it.
Bought brand new gas. Problem is, after several
pulls (only hint of pop, from the exhaust) the
spark plug is wet with gasoline, and the engine
never did start.
He tried the plug on the top of the engine, and
says he did see spark. I was standing in the
wrong place, can't confirm the spark.
The carb has a metering screw. We tried lightly
seated minus half turn. Minus one turn. Minus
quarter turn. Each floods.
I did a web search. Found a Youtube of a guy with
identical machine that runs fine. That's not much
Any ideas what to check, next?
