SOURCE: 1980 gs 1000 fuel petcock has two connections where do they go?

On the one that has two hoses does it still have an "Off" position? Usually petcocks that have two hoses, one goes to the carb vacuum, and the other is for a fuel supply for the engine. That way it only allows fuel to flow when the engine is running. I have found these to be a poor design and can often leak and allow fuel to run into the engine if your carbs are acting up. If the replacement only has one hose, then it will work fine, just be sure to cap off the vacuum port on the carb.

Loosen the gas cap. Then blow into the fuel line you just disconnected. It might be clogged in the tank at the fuel line

Generac home generator does not start. It starts alittle bit but then dies. Maybe runs for 4-6 seconds


is this unit diesel or gas? If its gas driven, the carburetor needs to be removed and cleaned out. Also make sure your gas is fresh. If not drain fuel tank, remove carb, clean out, re-assemble & test. Check fuel filter, oil level.
