Briggs And Stratton Informative - Nikki Carb Problems - Nikki Carburator
I own a genrac 6500 generator with a Briggs 10 horspower engine. The engine and generator are fine, but the nikki carburator is to finicky. every time we have bad weather for-casted that may cause a power outage I have to dissemble the carb an clean it in order to get the engine to run. I am sick and tired of this process. I have tried using stabil in the gas , extra filters in line, and running the carb dry to no avail. Last year I had a new carb put on the engine at a cost of nearly $100. dollars and still have the same troubles. My conclusion is these carbs have to be run often to keep them clear.
I have atiller with a warbro carb which gets run no more often than the generator that has never given me any trouble. Just showes which is in my opinion is the better carb .
