Default Honda EG5000X

I have a Honda EG5000X I replaced the head and Carburetor it got backed in to , I got this from a dealer who took it in as a trade in. How do i know what this has bonded Neutral floating or what ? I down loaded the manual either I missed it or it does not say. I am going to sell it so I know I will be asked and I dont know how to figure it out Thanks

EG should have a floating neutral. EB has a bonded neutral. You can buy a cheep plug in tester at Home Depot, or you can test it when the engine is off with a ohm meter. Put one probe in the neutral and one probe in the ground. You should get no beep if its floating.
