I think I remember that somebody had an oil sensor fail too...-Bill
I wonder how many thousands of these Japanese designed engines are in the landfills right now because of these hidden fuel filters.
So an update on 2 different subjects. 1rst: won’t run under load for more than 5 minutes. I thought it to be an electrical fault causing the shut down. After repetitive attaching a spark checker, I found it would only run and stay running while it was attached. Found that the dust cover on the ignition lead was keeping it from full contact or intermittent. I removed the dust cover.2nd. The obvious surge issue many people are having. Yes, a dirty carb and subsequent fuel issues can cause this. However, I have multiple eu2000, some made in Japan, and some in Thailand. . I have found, that all my old carb stuff do not surge in the slightest , while the new ones from Thailand do. There is no excuse for multiple new ones to surge right off the shelf. In any combination, new carb on 15 year old gen surges, old card on new gen does not. This is a manufacturing problem.
My understanding is that if you use pure gasoline, it will run 3-5% richer than a E15 blend.
