According to this webpage there are a few places that have non-ethanol (straight gas) in California. California Straight Gas

When I clean out the small holes in ports and jets I use the wire from a bread tie. It may do in a pinch for those out on the road.

I've done the propane/natural gas conversion on a few open frame generators but haven't done it on my inverter generator yet (WEN 56200i) and may convince myself to do it.

The OP really needs to be fixed to get those pictures back. I'm sure it was a lot of effort to do this, and it's a shame to just let it go for a few bucks or some other solution.

I had posted in July about just getting my eu2000i generator and it ran like ****. I ended up sending it back and was contemplating a Yamaha, I didn't as in unison they don't have as much power. The goal was to get two but after the first one with issues I decided to see what the new one would do,another Honda.

New one arrived, new fuel ran good for first tank, then same bologna. Runs great with eco off and with choke half way on, with eco mode. I then pulled the oem screen mesh (wouldn't call it a filter)out and it had some crud in there, threw it away. Installed an inline filter, took the carb off cleaned all the jets, float etc. Put it back together, same chit!!!

I had been communicating with Reddog1 and I went over to his place today to see if we could get this figured out. Pulled the carb, clean, clear, no issues, but still sputtering and dying without choke half on. Reddog1 pulled his carb off and it ran fine on my engine. So, it's the carb, but what's the issue?

So we put both carbs side by side to compare. When we took mine off, the spring on the throttle/eco switch that's under the plastic cover where the eco switch is located was in an odd spot? When I took the carb off last time, that's where it was also. I had pulled up the diagram online before but the carb diagram doesn't show it together so I had nothing to compare until today. Reddog1's spring was in a spot between the two plastic pieces and ( I wish I had taken photos as this may be hard to visualize)had a purpose. So I took it apart and installed the spring just as it was on Reddog1. Put it together and now it ran wide open??

We pulled it apart and the part that housed the spring was too low and preventing the eco servo from moving and 3/4 throttle . pulled it off again, Added a gap so no interference, fired it up and it purred. So basically the part wasn't installed correctly (in china) and Months of aggravation.

Sorry if this is hard to understand, this site is so old and adding pics is a nightmare.

Maybe Reddog1 can expalin it better

Glad you got it running! Wayne and I have been through these carbs pretty extensively. We added an inline filter to ours years ago.
