How to beat fuel-line vacuum in generator?
This is regarding a Husky 5000 watt, gasoline generator with a Subaru motor. I'm having some difficulty with the initial start-up after it's been sitting for some months. I think that I'm having some kind of vacuum problem between the gas tank and carb. I got around the problem by disconnecting the fuel line at the gas filter, and pouring some gas directly down the line into the carb. After that, it starts & runs just fine. Is there some other way I can beat this vacuum problem? When I store it for a few months at a time, I usually drain the carb bowl. Should I be doing that?
