Dave, another easy way is to remove the wire and squirt carb cleaner down the pipe, then put the cable back in and move it back and forth, then clean it out with a air compressor, works every time

maybe the tube if fractured and you wil need a new genny. if you have checked the nut that seals the genny onto the on/off switch and thats solid it may be worth undoing it and having a close look at the end of the genny where it fits into the nut.

if all else fails its going to be a new genny.

A tip i tried was to mix a little white spirit in the unleaded, i have tried it and it burns blue, would it work if i just used a white spirit?
