Hey guys, new to the forums here just inherited a 16hp 10000 watt Generator and the motor on this beast is a 16HP Briggs and Stratton Vtwin. The gas I drained from the tank was almost, almost, coffee colored. Ive replaced the fuel lines, new fuel filters and I have spark. The motor will start with ether into the carb or gasoline into the carb but wont stay running very long. I cant seem to find a way to pull the carb from the motor as it seems the mounting bolts are on the bottom of the carb and bolt from the bottom up. Anyone know what else I can try to get this motor running.
