i have a gx 200 honda generator that will not start. its only 2 years old.
i definitly have a good spark, i can see fuel being drawn from the carb on turnover. i have recenly cleaned out the whole fuel system and replaced the fuel, the jets, pipes and filters are clean as a whistle. Ive checked that the pushrods are not bent. ( fuel is on, choke is on)
The cylinder head is not cracked.
i refuse to beleive that there is a compression problem considering the age and usage. however, on turn over its doesn't feel very hard to pull on the compression stroke. What sort of pressure should i expect if i do a compression test?
i ve heard that there is a low oil shut off if the engine oil is too low.(anyone know how this works?) The oil level for the engine and the compressor are fine.
