Default Generator Modification

Well I found out that my generator does have a fuel pump like Marco said and after I dropped the unit I was able to get the electric pump out. I got to thinking and when the parts store only had a universal one in stock I decided to just mount it on the frame of the camper. I also put a fuel filter before the pump (this way dirt in the fuel won't ruin the pump) rather than after it as Onan had it. Where the fuel filter was, I put a piece of steel tubing with a slight bend in it as to match the fuel inlet of the carb. I would have liked to change the entire line but I couldn't get the electric wires disconected or the cover all the way off. I now have more room in there if I ever have to flip the circuit breaker and the fuel filter is out in the open to change. If that fuel pump goes bad again it is also in the open. So roughly $60 bucks later and a couple trips to the parts store I now have electric again. That beats the $100 pump only price I found on the internet.

Sounds like a good idea to me.

Of course, now that you've made it easy to get at, it'll last 50 years
