    This is a specific question that needs its own thread with the specific issue in the subject line.

    This sounds like a fuel filler neck orientation issue, combined with the particular fuel pumps being used. Some may not have a functioning auto-off if your fuel filler neck is vertical. You'll learn soon enough where to get fuel if you can't do it manually.

    What about the 325 Diesel, anyone try one. I know the ranger 305 were troublesome.

    Fine Control

    Yep, That's what it was cruiser, I put the fine control up to 10.
    Now my vac. output is running at 124vac. !

    In the Spring I'll take the cover off & clean the slip rings.

    Yep, you don't see a lot of them around any more. I bought it three yrs. ago ( it's a 1995 ) with only 55 hrs. on it . The guy had it sitting in a cargo container as a backup generator.

    Thanks guys;

    Thanks Cruizer;

    Thanks Cruizer;
    What's the best way to correct that ?

    120 volts ?

    I mean Hz. has been reset to the correct frequency - 62.5 Hz....... Lol .
    The above post has been corrected !

    Norm
    One thing I noticed since adjusting the Hz. to 62.5 , is that I just checked the AC. output and now it's just putting out 108 volts @ the receptacles Not 120 volts .

    Any concern for worry, will 108 volts cause problems running my tools ?

    Well I ordered the KILL A WATT monitor & come to find my Lincoln Ranger has been running at 70.5 Kw. not 62.5 Kw. for the last 3 years !

    Well I corrected it today , it's now at 62.5 Kw. , so I'll have to see if I find any difference in performance. It's for sure a lower RPM. now !

    Also at idle it's now at 38 Kw. , well time will tell, I guess .

    Norm
    kW is a measurement of energy, not frequency. You probably are reading in hz.
