    So the other day I picked up a little honda ex350 generator form a guy. Cleaned the carb and it runs great. The weird thing is that after the generators been running for about 15min or more and you shut it down the pull start won't catch, so the engine won't turn over. If you let it sit for about 5 min or so the pull start will start working again. Really weird. Any ideas?
