Jim, When you pull the carb also replace all rubber lines. When they start to deteriorate from the inside the dried up flakes of rubber cause a bunch of problems.

I'm not certain but I would venture a guess and say you will have to drop it.

My 87 onan will "surge" until you put a load on it, then it smoothes out.

If you have a BF, BFA, BGA, or NH generator then use the procedure on pdf page 25 (document page 23) of the linked to in post #3 above. If you have another generator type then it will depends on the model. Onan made/makes a lot of generators.
