Replaced Onan 2.8 Microlite carburetor (gas, not LP)about six weeks ago . Yesterday I tried to start it and it would crank but not start.
Would start and run with staring fluid.
Disconnected fuel lie at carb, cranked, no fuel.
When I had the generator down to replace the carb I spliced a new short piece of fuel lie to old fuel line to gas tank.
Disconnected splice and ran a temporary line to a 2 gallon gas can Generator started right up and I ran it with A/C for an hour. Works great.
The fuel line to the gas tank (probably original 1999) is hard and stiff.
So, next step is to replace al of the original fuel line.
Has anybody done this themselves?
If so, did you have to drop the gas tank to do it?
Of coarse, I filled the gas tank to rule out not starting because of low tank level.
