OK

This could be a few things, it could be the fuel filter, fuel pump, or the line going from the supply to the tank. To start I would check the line that is going to the fuel tank, many times they will use a rubber line and if that line has any cracks or loose connections the generator can suck air into the lines and might not start. You could get a gas can and run the supply direct to see if that is the problem. Next IF you have not done so I would change the fuel filter. Then you are possibly looking at the fuel pump or carb. as the issue.... Hope this helps some... Robert
