Eyedropper works pretty good too to squirt gasoline into the carb.

Trick my friend told me for a gas powered pressure washer that ran bad was to cover the intake with your hand a few times. Idea is that the extra suction caused by blocking the intake will clear out a clogged pilot jet. We got lucky and like some small motors the pilot jet pops out in seconds for easy cleaning. So i never tried that trick.

But its not a bad idea for the generator. If you can get it running try putting a piece of cardboard over the intake and kill the motor. Might get lucky and clear up whatever is clogged.

The China bomb carb from Amazon worked perfectly. It came with an in line fuel shut off. It ran with a surge at first but adding 10 gallons of fresh gas fixed that. I have not had any luck with fuel stabilizers. I think the shut off is the fix. I also pumped the gas out of the tank for use in the cars. I'll just put a couple gallons in to exercise the generator and not leave any crappy California gas in it anymore.

I run avgas and Maxima SuperM in 2 stroke power equipment and never had a problem no matter how long it sat. I have a vintage Suzuki 125 that clogs if I put even a quart of pump gas in I end up with problems. I have a Honda powered lawnmower that has never been affected by pump gas and it is 15 years old.

I'm in the middle of a similar issue with same genny. Going to start with replacing fuel pump and see what happens. It'll be from Amazon, as pumps are also on national backorder. Glad carb worked well for you right out of the box.

You have tried removing the fuel line at the carb and seeing if the pump pumps?
