I had purchased a 3500 watt gen set for the 5th wheel an did not let it go when we sold it. I thought we might use it for backup but never did. I would run it a bit every year just to keep the cobwebs out. Seems I didn't get them all out as it started to run terrible just when I thought I better sell it. Ok no problem I dissembled the carb installed a kit and it is once again running great. The problem is the settings had to be changed in order to get the carb off.
The problem is I got rid of my multimeter and a raft of tools when I retired. I had another multimeter at home so I never thought much of it. No Hertz on the meter at home
A meter with hertz is too expensive for a one time use.
Any Ideas how to set the cycles without a meter?
Get you a $25 Kill-A-Watt meter.
"Kill A Watt"™ Electric Monitor
It measures hertz and is handy for for other 120VAC electrical monitoring.
(I use mine to check the amp draw of any 120V electric appliance and I leave mine plugged into a outlet to check the voltage of incoming shore/genset power and/or inverter power).
