I've made a bit of progress with the generator. I got tired of trying to figure it out with it still in the M/H so I dropped it out, easily done except for the A/C wiring that was in a conduit and not accessible so I cut the 3 wires.
I set it on some saw horses hooked some battery cables to it, ran the fuel line into a fuel can. Instant test stand. Still no start, no spark. I took the coil off and went NAPA where they tested it and said it was producing spark. Watching them test it reminded me of a way to test it myself. I put the coil back on, took the spark plug wires off, took a spark plug and flipped it upside down and put it in the coil where the wire would normally go. Cranked the engine and still no spark. I ran a jumper wire from battery positive to the positive side of the coil and then I had spark. I put the wires back on and it will run this way.
So I did some research and pulled the control board panel out to look at the board itself. Was trying to test for battery power at terminal 7 of the board but wasn't getting any. So I bolted them panel back on.
Now it will start as long as the start button is pushed but dies as soon as it is released. So Im thinking it's a bad control board.
