Ike,1800 Diesel, I let that happen once trying to get a 4 cylinder John Deere diesel engine on a Kohler 30KW generator started, I had soaked a red shop rag in gasoline and had it tucked under the edge of the air filter. The engine suddenly came to life, sucked the rag down the intake made one giant cough and shot the glowing remains of the cloth along with a lot of other gunk out the open exhaust header, the image I will never get out of my head is the glowing fabric weave pattern bits of ash raining down.
Double / triple check your fuse. (I had one 2 weeks ago with a perfect blade inside and no continuity. Drove me nuts) Check the cap on the VR and all the connections.She's a runner! Hooked everything up this am and lit it off. Volt gauge is bad, hz gauge shows low (47hz vs 61hz on my handheld), and dcvr is inoperative. Hooked up to a 24.5 amp/240 load and ran for 1/2 hour. Makes good power. No blow-by at the oil fill cap like before. Have oil leak on #2 cylinder pushrod top tube oring. I did replace them-looks like new one is cut. Will work on that one.
Storeman-do you have any more dcvr's?
Be aware that those glass tubular fuses come in several different lengths that all look about the same to the eye. A short fuse will fit easily into a longer fuseholder but not provide continuity. Yes, it will drive you nuts.Double / triple check your fuse. (I had one 2 weeks ago with a perfect blade inside and no continuity. Drove me nuts) Check the cap on the VR and all the connections.
