Honda em6500sx generator valve train problem
Hi.. i have been asked to help a friend repair his generator.. he lives off grid and uses this to supply 100% of his electricity.. it's a 2016 model and has been converted to propane.
Unlike his previous generator..also a Honda... 4kw unit... which lasted 23 years before it died... that's another separate project... the.new one will not run more than 20 hrs before it shuts down.. investigation has revealed the exhaust valve tightens up to 0 clearance over the 20 or so hours
. Never more than 20... and the engine shuts down.
There is no warranty cause he did a second party propane conversion.. and he cant easily take the machine to a Honda dealer as he is on an island in the boonies of nw Ontario Canada.
I had my first look at it and other than nothing A LOT of movement in the valve train.. wiggle I mean at tdc... I'm at a loss. I cant find a service manual anywhere for it.
