    1.5 kw genset adjustment

    hi guys, well i got this 1.5kw set running well. Went with 5w-30 oil to replace the fairly black oil that was in it. Tested it with a hairdryer and seems to be performing well. Will put a little stabil in the gas in hopes to keep the gas from turning bad. My next project is to get the 3kw...

    1.5 kw genset adjustment

    i'm in Ottawa Ontario. I was able to get the 1985 pull and pray started tonight. Due to it being im my basement (lack of a heated outdoor shop) i only ran it for a few mins. I noticed the short time it was running that the throttle\governor lever did nothing. Maybe i didn't connect the linkage...

    1.5 kw genset adjustment

    removed the carb this evening and cleaned it. I cant see it being any special gasket that seals the glass strainer bowl so thats what i will try and find next. Anyone have a working fuel pump for this unit? :) as i have a feeling it will be pooched. I would probably just replace the entire fuel...

    1.5 kw genset adjustment

    hmm..its quite a unit forsure. I found a blockage in the rubber line from the tank to the sediment bowl connection. cleared it and once removing the glass bowl, the rubber gasket between the glass bowl and the brass housing fell apart in my hands. Looks like i'm gonna have to find another gasket...

    1.5 kw genset adjustment

    thanks for the reply Magnus, my 3kw manual calls for 3\4 of a turn out on the main adjustment needle and 1\2 turn out on the idle adjustment needle. Guess i'll run with that. Kinda fugured those setting would be different on the carb between a 6hp and 3hp engine. I'll giver a try..thanks again...

    1.5 kw genset adjustment

    hi, i looked at the manuals and there is nothing mentioned about carb settings. The 3kw model is a 6hp and the 1.5kw is a 3hp. Would the adjustments not be different? If someone has a different manual for a 1.5kw pull and pray that shows the carb and needle adjustment settings I would appreciate...

    1.5 kw genset adjustment

    1.5 kw genset adjustment

    this set is a 120v if i can get it running :) yes this rope start is a pain in the arse..maybe i'll get lucky if i can clean or replace the carb on it. I'll check the fuel filter also and line\hose. Too bad there wasn't a fuel primer bulb on it. Also will try 2 turns out on the main needle valve...

    1.5 kw genset adjustment

    hi guys, I have a 1.5kw gen set that has been sitting unused for around 4-5 years. I drained all the old varnished gas out of it, cleaned the glass bowl. The needle valve had been removed when i got it back then and i have it but not sure what the adjustment is on it. I'm guessing at around 3\4...
