Kohler 7CM21-RV Reset Button?
Greetings Airstreamers. The genny in my '86 345 died during a long HOT Oklahoma day, two years ago. Fuel and oil levels were fine, so I have to believe the thing overheated, as it was 110 degrees and it ran for over 8 hours. It turns over, but won't start, even w/starting fluid. The repair manual I downloaded shows a reset button near the starter button, and says to reset if it overheats. My rig doesn't have this button. I ran a fuel line direct to a gas can, and the fuel pump doesn't appear to be sucking any fuel, as well. My father-in-law attempted to gap the points, but got frustrated at their location, and his inability to work with them in such a chaotic environment (wants me to pull the unit from the rig).
I realize that I should rehab or replace the carb after sitting for two years, but am concerned that won't fix the problem. I have searched the other threads, and couldn't find anything on overheating, or a reset button? Also, anybody ever use the "Pointsaver" product that supposedly makes point adjustment a breeze?
Any help or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks for your time.
