    There are about a million threads on load banking and building a simple, SAFE and cheap load bank. Maybe take a look see. It truth, its must not cost a million bucks and can be safe.

    Before a gen set left my repair shop, it had to run under a full load, (No, NOT 120% load!) for 6-8 hours to be considered fixed. So when ever you THINK its fixed, you should at least run it under load, and at least 4-6 hours. You never NEED a generator, until you NEED a generator.

    OK, now I found it! In this thread you are having problems with the engine running. I read through this thread several times. Did you follow Kurts suggestions in message #5? And a video would help. If we can see/hear it start to bog down, we may have a better clue.

    Mark everything before trying to adjust. If the "adjustment" is not helping, put it back where it was. Also know that the fuel shutoff and its connections, if they are loose, or mal adjusted, will give you that fault.
