Customer Question

Generac Wheelhouse generator will start on the first pull and quit after five seconds. It's old but used once and ran dry before storage. Carb is clean. oil is full.

JA: Is there anything else the Small Engine Technician should be aware of?
Customer: no. the unit has about one hour of run time on it. I think it's the oil level sensor but I have no way to check/test
