Re: 3kw portable generator

In my original post I said nothing about solar power. I don't know what I forgot to mention. Not having an automatic coke is the big stumbling block. My system works perfect for me, why is that so hard to believe.

There are a lot of things you said nothing about. That's why you got so much speculation.

If nobody still makes what you want you'll either have to find it used, make it yourself or make other plans.

Do you really need an automatic choke? Can you use a solenoid to operate a manual choke to make it automatic? Can you find an automatic choke from another engine and adapt it?

Don't worry! They will be so busy arguing with each other about whose right soon you can just ignore them!
