This generator was purchased over 18 months ago directly from a seller who had advertised it on Ebay for £100 cash. I promptly took it home from Cannock Chase. It had been standing around for a few years prior to me getting it, at least so I am told, it was purchased and hardly used.
When I got it home i got it started on the stale fuel that was still in the tank, and although it smelled pretty bad it ran great. Unfortunatly though it didnt make any electricity, which I was told that it was 100% working. So after packing it away for 18 months I dug it out again.
I took it to a repair shop for 2 stroke engines and chainsaws, who then sent it off to their specialist in Wrexham. They said that it was all burned out inside ( I don't believe them do be honest, as I've had the back off it myself and none of it looks burned.
So I took a chance and ordered two new motor run capacitors (as its a capacitor controlled brushless alernator)
I fitted one and after some tinkering the machine started to produce electrcity again after so long. I have even run a 2kw electric heater off this gen set and it ran brilliantly.
