So my generator started acting up. This is after a spark plug change and removing the carb to drain and clean the bowl. It now seems like it is sucking too much fuel in. I can make it run correctly by disconnecting the fuel pump (power) and once it drains the float bowl a bit it stops spitting fuel out of the carb, and sounds and runs normally. In my video you can see it run correctly up to the 8 second mark. Any ideas?
Troubleshooting Ive done.
I've hooked it up without the float bowl and verified that the float does stop the fuel flow when it is about level. The float does seem to float, and has no fuel in it. Everything has been sprayed with carb cleaner a few times now to ensure no debris is in the carb (but it was clean when I pulled it). Everything is fine when the float bowl has almost no fuel in it, but when it is at a normal level it runs very rich, spits fuel back out of the carb, smokes, and sounds like a vw bug.
Here is the video:
