Having trouble getting a Kohler 5E gas generator
running smoothly. I have the Kohler 'service manual'; for engine
adjustment it is useless.
that the generator
uses is a Kawasaki watercooled v-twin FD501D, of course, now out of production.
I've not been able to find anything specific from Kawasaki either.
What I'm looking for is a specific procedure for setting/adjusting the choke/governor/ throttle.
At the moment the generator runs well enough, with voltage, under load or idle, at between 119 - 121, but the operation and speed is not anything close to what I'd call satisfactory; there is an intermittent miss, and some slight, also intermittent backfiring through the carb, which seems to be influencable via carburetor adjustment.
The carburetor is new, there was a ground problem (the original complaint) that was identified and repaired immediately.
The engine starts and runs well otherwise, with no overheating
, smoking, leaking or anomalous fluid consumption
Any information is much appreciated.
