Honda Generator EM5000SX carb issues/questions

Guy - thanks for the help beforehand.

Got a Honda 5000SX generator from my father and it was leaking fuel and not running great. I bought a replacement carb and there is no vacuum port on the carb insulator so I m unsure what to do there....There is a vacuum line that looks like it runs to a solenoid.



Also, got it back together (new plug too) and it will immediately die if the auto throttle is turned on. Any ideas of what to do?


Thanks,
Eric

Honda is very popular in this forum.

I purchased a Propane Generator from Central Maine Diesel a few years ago.

20 HP Honda engine, Italian generator head.
Paid about $2300 plus shipping via Paradise Freight which was a few hundred.
I see the price is just a bit higher now... But the one I want most is cummins which i saw from a website.

Recently it blew a capacitor. Central Maine sent me 2 for the price of one even though it is out of warranty. $39 total for two.

I looked at generators on island but a similar Honda at Quality electric was close to $6000 and it wasn't even a 13750kw. More like 8 or 9000kw if I remember right.....

They have many generators at great prices but this is the one I settled for.

Quiet, no smell, propane lasts forever........
