Watched this video for fun and enjoyed it. Think some of you will too. Guy has the skills to do a full teardown and re-assembly and no left over parts and the **** thing runs.
I have performed a partial teardown for a repair and getting the covers/skins back on correctly is sometimes not so easy..hahahaa

No leftover parts? That seems unAmerican.

Very informative.

I wonder if a good ATF soak for a few days would have helped? I would have tried that after the leakdown and realized the head wasn't removable.

Sitting here thinking about this video over my morning coffee I had to ask why a 6 yr old generator had so much carbon build-up to begin with. I concluded it ran cheap gas at idle on a job site for long periods of time. My guess is the owner never put much load on it and allowed it to idle on eco mode all day.

The real take away on this is to occasionally load up your generator to keep if healthy.

My take away: Why spend $240 for an old broken generator that you don't know you can repair? Then, put in all that labor with the possibility of needing expensive parts. Why not spend $500 on a different brand and get a brand new generator?

I have an EU200i and enjoyed seeing the complexity that is under the covers.

Maybe it was a challenge for the young man and curious....

That all said it does make me wonder why so much carbon. As he took apart the Gen it was quite filthy internally, dirt and dust etc. I believe the gen had a lot of hours on it.

Considering his knowledge and tools on hand it wouldn't be unreasonable to conclude this is his livelihood. He would know a replacement inverter module retails for $700. The stator is $150. Many other donor parts as well.
