bought a used generator, 100 bucks, honda clone engine
i bought a used 4000W peak, 3500W running generator yesterday. its powered by one of those honda clone engines, chinese made. normally i stick to briggs or kohler k series cast iron, but this time i thought for 100 bucks what do i have to loose. generators hopefully will only get used a couple times a year. i live in the countryside, the power does go out and i will use it. anyways, how good are these engines? it seems to start right up and run decently. when i first got it, it wouldn't run right unless it was at half choke. i took the carburetor apart and blew out all of the passages. the carburetor was fairly clean, so i assumed it was just a little piece of debris. now it runs like it should, runs good but not the quietest generator in the world.
i was wondering, how good are these engines? i dont know too much about them.
by the way the generator head is good and it does produce power.
