My generator failed to start my 2.5hp compressor that runs at about 5hp at shut off.
I put the generator on the compressor when it was empty and the starting surge bogged the engine down to the point where it wouldn't get back up to speed.
I would like for the generator to be able to run this generator. So I am going to add some performance enhancements to the engine and add a soft start to the air compressor.
Since the generator needs a new exhaust I am going to make a 4ft long primary tube exhaust pipe and a better intake. The intake came on this engine what you also find on 5 to 7 horsepower mowers and pressure washers.
