That's great news!! 'Goes to show' that troubleshooting a problem is often not simple in that symptoms can be misleading. I was convinced your genset was starved for gas from an intermittent fuel pump weakness/failure. How the genset ran for 'an hour' while sucking air is still curious. Cracks in the fuel line must have somehow been 'closed' at times....?

My fuel line from the tank to the generator was bad and I had to drop the tank down 18 inches to access the bad hose. I prefer one-and-done, so I replaced with fuel line instead of using fuel hose. It takes longer to bend the fuel lines but once it's done, it's done forever!

I had a 2000 Dolphin. The tank had to be dropped to install a new line, because the old line was rotted. Even after the new line was installed, it had to be started and run at least every 3 weeks or it would loose prime. It would very difficult to prime and get it running, even with a new fuel line, if it sat idle to long. Thought possibly it was due to the long fuel line. Good Luck!
