For that, you will want a heavy-duty generator which runs at 1800 RPM.

Re: air cooled generator:?

if anyone knows where i can find parts for this engine, namely a head gasket, please let me know.

the new entec company uses a bigger and newer engine.

Re: air cooled generator:?

once we got it off, we realized that the air filter could not be serviced, without removing the engine. that is my first check, but i want to replace the gaskets.
