Craigslist ad about 5 miles from my house on Sunday morning
5000 watt generator, 5 years old with 2.6 hours on the meter. Leaks gas, $75.
The post was only 25 min old when I saw it. Fired up the wood burner and using the hoist had it in the truck 45 min later.
I told the guy that it was almost certainly a stuck carburetor float. But although he had paid over $700 for it, just wanted it gone.
I worked on it about 1/2 hr, cleaned out the gel from the carb and it started on 2nd pull!
