Onan 4.5 generator - where to begin?

Wow, this forum rocks! I'm about to start working on the generator. Previous Owner said it needs carb work. Are these worth trying to clean? or could it be something else? Any suggestions would be great

Assuming the electric side is working I think you'll get 'er going. The KY model carbs are mostly disposable but I'm pretty sure you can clean the one you have.

Head over to "smokstak.com" if you haven't already.

Good luck.
