I hate electrical. Just back track from the spark plug and check all your connections.

Does your generator have the low oil shutoff?
I would check those rusty connections. Also I had a generator that lost power and I found out the low oil sensor was bad. Unhooked the wire and I got power.
Forget everything I posted. I thought you were talking about not getting it to run instead of not putting out power like you are having problems with. I'm at a loss there. Is the generator old?
Id say it's a good idea to take it to a guy that knows what he is doing. Don't know about you but I usually end up wrecking something if I have no idea what I'm doing lol. Good luck hope you get it figured out. Our yamaha from our hunting cabin had close to 5000 hours on it before it died last year.
Lol. Good luck!!
got word back on generator it was the voltage regulator the half moon looking thing in picture. he said we could do some swapping. night out bowfishing i jumped all over that deal. whew still got internet and cable. LOL
Can't beat that. Good to hear it wasn't to bad of a fix.
It is so worth paying some one that knows what they are doing if you can afford it.
Or in his case just trade for a good night of shooting. Lol
