opk what i thought it was the starter but its the generator that is make werid noise when starting like a taping noise, clanking noise when its idels any ideas of whats the problem or how to fix it with out buying a new one? thanks!
I had a generator that started making a knocking noise so I disassembled it and found out the bearing went bad. I bought a rebuild kit from the dealer that came with new bearings & seals and that took care of the problem.
younggixxer, one way to check the generator is to unplug it while the engine is running if the noise goes away most likely its the generator. I wish I could remember how much the rebiuld kit was but it was about 6 years ago.sorry
