Update on the Generjunk. As I suspected, there is no spark. I pulled the plug and it was wet from gas. Earlier when trying to start it, there was absolutely no signs of it firing over.

So, the problem was be an electrical problem in the Generjunk or the spark plug. Since this is a Generjunk, I would bet the problem is NOT the spark plug. This is all the time I plan to spend on this p.o.s. today.

*** If for some reason that a repair part would cost too much, I have a "Plan B" for the Generac (Plan A is Death Match II).

I want to construct a electric mechanical arm that will swing a cement filled pipe. Essentially, it will be a mechanical batting arm that will continuously swing the pipe with lots of force.

I want rig the Generac so it securely hangs from a tree on a chain. The electo-mechanical batting device will be 100% powered by my Onan 6.5NH and will be positioned so the cement filled pipe continuously beats the crap out of the Generac until nothing is left. I can stream the action live over the internet as I did for the Death Match. We can make friendly bets as to how long the Generac lasts until it is unrecognizable or maybe raise a few dollars to help Harry's administrative costs for this site as we did for the Death Match. Open to any and all ideas.

Bit of a side track but here's an idea for a different interesting video. Bolt up that cement pipe off center to an engine and clamp whole thing to a tall old dead tree. Then run the engine at different speeds till the tree vibrates in several S shapes and video it cracking the top ~ 1/6 off the tree. Then increase rpm and do it several more times. Guessing 3 hp will do it. I got a few tall ones near house and power line that have to come down piece by piece, before they choose the time to come down in 1 piece.

Len, the idea is to destroy the Generac in the most horrific way, not my trees.

Destroying it in the most horrific way requires getting it running. Wide open throttle, governor disconnected, wound out until it is about ready to blow on its own, then drop a water balloon down the intake. Just be sure to be standing where you won't get perforated by the scattering parts.

I would like to, but this state is mostly ran by libs and if you fire off an air gun and get caught, you go to jail . Ask me how I know....

How about dropping it into a huge bucket of boiling oil while it's running?

JohnnyC- if u get the generjunk running i have a 2.2 onan that the Briggs threw a rod on. Have been looking for a 5HP tapered shaft motor but no luck yet.

The gen end is perfect, you just need the engine, yours for the taking for the death match, just need a engine. If not i will just keep hunting, really love that little gen, portable and made me gazillions when i was a builder, Ed.

Thanks! BTW - I replaced the spark plug on the Generjunk and it starts, but dies after 2 seconds. This happens consistently. It is not a fuel problem. Did a quick Google and this problem for Generjunks seem to be common. That's all the time I plan to spend on that p.o.s. today.
