Today it took me a number of pulls to get my generator running, about 10 pulls. I didn’t put in a lot of fuel because I was just running it to make sure it would be good if we have an problems with tropical storm. Because there wasn’t much fuel it didn’t crank easy. Anyway, i finally got it going and gas was dripping from 2 of the lines which attach to the servo. I think that’s what it called. Anyway, I had the exact thing happen once in the past when I made too many start attempts. I’m including a picture which shows the 2 lines where fuel was leaking where the lines attach to the servo. I waited for it to cool and cranked it up and ran it an hour with no problem. So I’m pretty sure the problem only occurs when initially pulling too many times. Obviously I’m not going to pull that much in the future. Is this a safety concern as long as I don’t pull too many times?
