We just came out of an 9 hr blackout. I sat the genie up and the carb was stuck and was blowing gas out the side again. Drove 45 miles, two towns over to the small engine repair. He was getting ready to close up in an hour but he would tear it down really quick to see if the float was stuck. He knew we were in a black out. It was a no go on repair. The pic was corroded and I needed a new string pin or an carb upgrade. Apparently he needed a certain Chinese made pin that wasn't in his Chinese parts collection. LOL
Fortunately we have candles and a backup emergency Propane heater in the living room. Darn ice on the power lines. I need to buy those 100 hr survival candles for back up.
