Customer Question

Good AM. Have a GENERAC 4000 EXL generator, not used for 8 yrs, found out the plastic pipe part of the fuel shut off valve is broken. Generac does not list a replacement for the 4000 EXL. How do I get the right valve part and how do I replace it ?
JA: What's the make and model of the generator? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: GENERAC 4000 EXL, possibly 10-12 yrs
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: not necessarily
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: there are multiple parts, fitting different models, needs something to fit the 4000 EXL
