Here is the full video of picking the free piles if interested, tvclip.biz/video/TVVLVdY-fCs/video.html
My neighbor brought this exact same genny over over last week, I havnt had time to play it it yet, but I was going to do the exact same thing to it
Before you started making videos, I bet you were talking to yourself like you talk to us now. You're so good at it. Question: I have a 800 watts 4 stroke chinese generator without the recoil start which happen to rotate reverse to every motor I have seen before. I start it with a cordless drill. Do you have any idea where I could find or rig a reverse recoil start? I want to give it to a friend but she doesn't have the skills to use it that way. Thanks again for your spellbinding videos. I have learned a lot through them.
can he fix it?? YES HE CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! another successful rehab by M! as for the gas cap I would run a few strips of DUCK TAPE around it and call it a day until next years pick U can find another cap
Already watched! :)
Well here's the culprit ! I have to much gas in my water! Good prognosis and explanation Mustie. As you've pointed out, one can see by the factory indent in the top of the tank, a bad gas cap gasket and a cracked sight lens.., all a good recipe for failure especially when left out in the weather, no doubt it was probably parked under an eave of the shed or home given the amount of water. You clearly have more than just a basic understanding of small engines, you also possess a good down to earth sense approach. Thanks brother for all you do, awesome videos.. LOL I've gotten in trouble with the boss for bringing coffee cups out in the garage, used them for everything except coffee.
You got a Taryl cup😄 nice!!
I have no idea why your videos were recommended to me, but I’m glad they did as I quite enjoy them and learned some things in the process. Also, I find your voice very relaxing.
i have a champion generator. I use it on a daily basis on average 6-12 hrs. a day. I change oil approximately every 40 to 60 hrs. of run time. had it since june 2019. I got some bad gas, full of contaminants. did not notice it until it was to late. now the generator will not start. I checked the flow of gas, it all seems to be working right. however when its about to start, it backfires. it acts like it's flooding itself. I cant seem to cure the issue. is there any suggestions that you or anyone might be able to give me to get it back running? buying a new one is not cost efficient for me at this point in time. I will if need be but I would rather expend all other options trying to get the one I have up and going before I do. I am no small engine repairman. so honestly I have no idea what to do or how to fix it. the closest repair shop I know of is about 50 miles away from me. it's a hassle to take the trip.
@Frannie l would check valve clearance for sure then
@Mustie1 yeah, pulled the valve plate, took the float out shook it to make sure it was not filled, wiped the needle off even blew through the line in to make sure it cut off. i actually just come in from working on it. i'm not sure but I think the compression thing it messed up or the motor is blown. with the plug still in, it spins to freely when I try to start it. I guess i'm gonna take it to a small engine repairman tomorrow. if the price of repair exceeds the cost of a new one then i'll get a new one. and keep the broke one for parts.
have you adjusted the valves yet and pull the float bowl to clean it?
Oh no, you own a 'Taryl Dactal Coffee Mug' and you pour gasoline in, instead of keeping it in the glass cabinet. I would be glad to have one. There's your dinner...
Well... when the truck vid mustie1
A slappy valve is a happy valve!
Musti can you buy a 2troke car in the futur that would be awesome like an Watburg or Trabant
Good video. Learned a lot
Mustie, many generators have a battery charging port. The instructions often say to not power anything else while charging a battery. Other than not exceeding the generator's max continuous output, do you know why this is?
That ain’t no honda
12:05...well, if you say so-!!
I'm sorry mustie, the dislikes were on 68, what was I to do?Edit: don't worry, i couldn't bring myself to do it
A Fram 3614 fits most of them.
Mighty thick gas I would say.
would of got some steel wool on that muffler it would come right up i think
Words of caution: I just read the service manual for my 9hp unit and the valve clearance adjustment should be 1/4 turn of the crankshaft PAST top dead center, .005" intake .005" exhaust. At TDS mine had no slop, so yours might be the same, so be sure to verify.Second, Congrats on the find. This generator has a Briggs and Stratton Japanese produced engine with cast iron sleeves. Generac farmed out production to China now. If you had found a later Generac model, it would be about the same quality as Harbor Freight. The older B&S engines are better quality and worth rebuilding, even if it needed new rings. Lucky for you it wasn't anything worse than a carb rebuild.I'm in the middle of my overhaul, so thank you for the video and your efforts to share your knowledge! I still have to do the carbs on mine. I also have the high oil mark on the dipstick, so gas has leaked past the rings from the carbs. Did you soak the carbs in pine sol to loosen up the varnish? Used that a lot for my motorcycle carbs and it's works a treat!
Sell it back to the poor schmuck who abandoned it?
The term you were trying to find from your gray matter is called "water tension".
I heard your Father worked at 3M Company in Mass. my 1st cousin, Maurice Courtney, worked there also until retirement, did he know him?
no he was in nj
If you have one of those wheel kits to sale, do let me know
Picking your booger on camera.. really Mustie?? Lol
Have you ever found a replacement gas level gas cap Mustie1? I need a few.
Nice score Darrin!
It's pretty cool you do that! I don't ever get anything as exciting as that, however hopefully I will be getting a few lawnmowers soon to fix. Most likely though, I will get the majority of the mowers next summer after they've been sitting during the winter and won't start after that. Usually I can empty the gas and give the carb a quick clean and it'll start right up.
Hey, I love to watch you fix those generators and more. I have a 10000 watts generac exl and don't know where to get the wheel kit. Can you help. Again there's oil all over the engine and was told it's from the crankcase. Crank oil seal failure. What should I do
I never noticed that we have the same coffee cup. Mine has a big crack in it. I wonder if he truly fixes all??
3:05 . I have that same tub....can't remember where it came from....maybe USPS...maybe a local Candle Factory...I just can't remember, all I know it that it's worth keeping.
Nice fix.....gives you something to crow about....
Lucky, I never stumble across good stuff like this. Mowers with rods sticking out the side.
"It doesn't taste like gas"Really Darren? XD
Hey mustie I have a question about a generic (I believe it's that brand) generator It's an older one that we bought and it sat for about 6 years and my cousin got it running. It runs fine but it only runs when the choke is on. The carb has been taken off and cleaned and float works normal. What could be the cause of it running only on choke? It delivers 120 volts when loaded and runs fine besides choke has to be in non stop. Once you turn the choke off it's like you hit the kill switch. It's been taken to a guy who works on small engines and he can't figure it out himself. Even with the choke off no matter how you adjust the idle screw it still shuts off. Maybe you have an input on it.
oi'm bringin' my travel mug hahahahahaha...............
you find all the good toys!
Whenever I feel exhausted of this life and world I come here and just listen and watch mustie fixing things.
Generac gensets are top notch generators! As long as they're well taken care of, they'll last a very long time, as would any generator that's kept well maintained. I've got two pulsar generators and one champion and all three are well maintained
Is the door open in that garage while running the engine?
So what substance was the "booger"?
I have run these generators for 15 years. I have become used to their quirks. Two things....you can adjust the voltage; through the panel on to the circuit board there is a dashpot for voltage adjustment, back, on the left side of the control panel. Second thing, it seems to be common for the exhaust valve to become tight. I think the valve seat is slowly mashed deeper into the aluminium head.
@Mustie1 I have a Honda eb3000c and it’s missing the screws or bolts that hold the carburetor to the engine the question is what kind of screws or bolts are used
Always fill oil filter with oil prior to installation. Wait for the oil to be absorbed by media and fill again. Repeat until oil is no longer absorbed. Then install. If concerns about spilling, just dump excess out as media will still be soaked. If not, this can lead to incorrect oil level readings if taken right away after filling crankcase. Doing this will also avoid dry-starts on engines you love and take care of. Just saying......
Awesome Score Brother! Thanks for doing these Awesome Videos. My Uncle gave me a pressure washer. Got to go check it out. Thanks for the Great Advice.
Mustie1 thanks for all your videos and sharing, I really enjoy all your videos!You have inspired me to start making clips of what I do, though it’s much different to you as I mainly come from the electrical / electronics side. One of these days I will need to do my chainsaw though, as I do believe it has fuel in, which I not know why it shouldn’t, and thanks to you I know what to do about it!
Throw-away consumerism. Too much money and no brains.
Mustie1, I just purchased a dune buggy with a VW engine. There is no engine code under the alternator pedestal. How do I determine the cc's of the engine?
hmm, is it a single port or dual port
I Swear I saw this on facebook marketplace and almost picked it up the other day for 50 bucks......
Just goes to show people are too quick to throw away stuff theses days.
Im a big fan man ! Would like to see some Harley Davidson videos. Keep up the good work. Later
never had one but have been keeping my eyes open
Another win for Mustie1. I am curious how you prefer to clean up carburetors if your ultrasonic cleaner is not available? As a relatively new arrival, I really enjoy your content, keep up the good work!
I'm trying to find out if the 1.5 KW army generator you found works
is that a sasquatch chicken?
Mustie I really like your videos but why leave every single work you do running on idle and for ages? Surely if there's a problem, a guy with your experience can see it within a few seconds of it running! Again I really dig the videos but maybe think a bit more about the planet. Or your lungs... Sorry but couldn't not point that out
Mustie1 I was just saying that it’d be cool if you could reduce the idle times as much as possible...every little helps when it comes to saving our planet...
are you complianing that l am letting it run for 5 minutes, l dont understand the comment,
Fantastic score !
Nice scrap find and good job bringing it back to life. Scrap on
I wonder if the person who put this out saw this video and is now sorry that they trashed it :)
Idling well, I have worked on many of these and had some of them "hunt".
@Rob C We sometimes had to change the tensioner spring. That was the biggest problem when we were building up generator sets .
Hunting often caused by a partially clogged jet or a sticking float needle valve. Sometimes a bottle of fuel injector cleaner mixed with fresh gas will fix the problem without pulling the carb.
