HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Has it been sitting for a while and not run or used?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
But I changed oil and gas and battery and engine runs great. Just doesn't produce any electricity. But I asked this question yesterday afternoon and since then I have figured out the relay was broke. With engine running it only 2 volts through it and suppose to have 12. So we are ordering a new one
