smokstak has been good with lots of INFO.
I moved the clear filter to see that the fuel pump is keeping it full, it is!
The carb main jet on the bowl is set using the air/fuel meter, set for best running and it does not have to turn much to get it right.
If I can not get it to run right, I will remove it after "Q". I am just going in circles right now!

On my 78 6.5k with the engine off, the hole the rod is hooked to is at the top,
also, when I thought I was having carb issures turned out the points were bad,
once I replaced and set them, its running fine

Thank you! I will move the rod when I have time. I replaced the points and more last year.

With help @ "Q" from Kevin we got it running. The choke rod goes to the bottom hole on this Gen. The GOV rod I made too lone (made it shorter @ "Q") then it was Kevin to help me with setting the carb up, the stop was out of adjustment, then set the gov rod length, and set the air / fuel. Next: I need to move the fan temp switch and change the oil to see if it shuts down after 2 Hrs. of run time.
