RE: Eu2000i muffler cleaning ideas?

Original Poster: I tried brake cleaner.. not so effective Carb cleaner.. better than brake cleaner it seemed. This carbon seems resistant to cleaning. Then I fired up my grill and tossed in the muffler. Turned it over a few times. I think the hotter you get, the more carbon gets burned off. Dont think my grill was extremely hot. When i was done, i tapped the muffler all over. Also picked up some rubber corks at the hardware store. This so i could fill the muffler with carb cleaner. But also you can drill a little hole through the cork and put the little red straw through it. Then you can blow canned air through it if you don’t have a compressor available. The cork/can thing also allowed me to bust through the initial full blockage. Muffler pretty clean now.

RE: Eu2000i muffler cleaning ideas?

Yes. Probably carbon or murder hornet nests ... maybe (hope not) a mouse nest. Im rooting for carbon. I looked up muffler construction. Some are just metal chambers, but some also have fiberglass packing. I also think auto shops get parts dip cleaned on a regular basis

RE: Eu2000i muffler cleaning ideas?

Its the whole muffler. Muffler clogged, not the arrestor screen.

RE: Eu2000i muffler cleaning ideas?

For soaking, im thinking non-flammable is better, but I guess I can let it dry a long time. Techron idea is interesting. I know i can get a bunch of that..

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

Yes, I knew someone mentioned to check the exhaust. Took the rear end for granted again. Lol Yes thats why it would only run for like a second, and then you had to wait like 15 min to try again. Time for exhaust to clear out i guess

Eu2000i muffler cleaning ideas?

Its $135 for a new one. Mine is completely blocked. If you blow on it, nothing goes through. Any ideas? What is the internal structure of these things? Is it just a cavity or is there like a zig-zag path?

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

Well, I want to say thanks to you all for accompanying me and giving me direction during this. It would have been much harder without you all. This was actually the end of a complete rebuild of the eu2000i. There is alot of info out there on repairs to this unit, but I couldnt find anything on an overhaul. I took pictures and numbered them if anybody is interested. groundhogyh at yahoo

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

Yes, this unit sat for a couple of years. It was in two shops. The one guy gave it back to me and couldnt fix it. Lol

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

Um... I just put my finger on the exhaust pipe hole... Pulled the cord a little. I didn’t feel anything come out. Is that bad? Lol

“check for spark immediately after it dies.” Explain further.

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

All I get from this motor is like 1 second of running. And that is once in awhile. It’s sort of like you have to wait a bit before it will fire off again. -it only runs for a second. Its like the spark goes away with compression... of vibration? Something that happens once motor is active. -or like a little fumes gets in there after you wait awhile, but thats all it gets

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

Question: Is there a way to disconnect the inverter part of the system and then start the motor?

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

Question: What if I removed the carb, and tried to start with only starting fluid (which has done zero to date by the way)? If it ran like this, would that prove its a flooding carb? Can a carb flood a cylinder in ONE second? Cause thats all I get from this motor

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

Maybe a hint? When it does fire off. I always seem to have to wait awhile before it will want to fire again. Does that tell you anything?

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

First pull after resetting valves, put oil in cylinder and it gave a good try at starting. Lol It sounds sweet for like one second. Then still quitting.

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

-checked oil level sensor. Open=oil. Good -gravity fed fuel tank. No help. -rechecked valve clearances. They loosened ip a bit. -checked valves. TDC fire, down, exhaust open, up, intake, down, compress up, TDC fire.

RE: EU2000i starts, then imediately quits..

Yes, put finger on spark plug hole. Air pushes passed my finger.
