Do they do this every couple years? I want my name on the list.
This is what popped into my head...
That's when I bought mine . . . we've had to use them 3-4 times for several days. Thankfully Cimarron Electric Cooperative has gotten much more reliable over the years.
Ha! No angles in sight and the mother Mary won’t return my calls
Same. Only problem is the wife will not let me keep full gas cans around for it.
Just some food for thought. One thing I always do with all of these single cylinder, overhead valve engines. Be it my Westinghouse Generators, or my Kohler powered pressure washer. Is after I shut them down, I always lightly pull on the recoil starter until I feel compression. What this does is make sure both the intake and exhaust valves are closed. (Engine on the compression stroke). This relaxes both valve springs.
If your storing the unit for several weeks or months, it help keeps the valve lash from going out of whack over time. If you run the engine daily, or even weekly you don't have to bother. I always do because I've gotten into the habit.
Cheapest insurance you have purchased especially if you divide the expense out over the years.
Not doubting you. Just tagging @swampratt as he always has some good information like this.
I think you're gonna' like that Champion. I got the 7500 watt from Atwoods just before the Great Halloween Ice Storm of '20 and have had zero problems with it. Electric start and dual fuel made it a no brainer. It sure makes a lot of noise, but it makes a lot of electricity, so I can forgive the noise part.
Do not use sta-bil. A mechanic told me this stuff keeps him in business.
