I have a 2cyl. Mep? generator, it has been sitting for awile. I have it running but have to hand feather the choke to keep it running smooth, if I let go of the choke it die's. Does anybody have any tips as to what may be the problem. Thanks Stacey

I would surmise that it has some funk growing in the carb. As cheap as they are, I'd just opt for a replacement.

Gunked up carb. Fuel restriction (bad pump, bad filter). Fouled plugs. Saturn has lots of parts for these.

Zap Zap!

Try Saturn Surplus. They sponsor this site and there's a link at the top of the page. Probably around $30 or so. If you have any MEP gas gensets, Saturn is your friend.
