Honda EM 900 Generator

Bob Caldwell was getting rid of a older Honda EM 900 Generator. The Nashville heat and gas melted the carb bowl, collects dirt so it doesn't get in the jets. It took 8 weeks and finally the local Honda dealer came through. The replacement part cost $14.00. A Generator never imported to Canada, this might be the first that is 45 years old and parts are still available.

The old plastic bowl just shrunk and fell through the collet
The new bowl is made out of pot metal and has a flat washer to seal the gas

OC west is a pretty generous guy! I personally can not stop laughing when East and West go at it! Having met both gentlemen I wish I was the fourth trailer in the driveway to hear the stories! Would have been deep in folklore!!

Bob, What else do you have to give away? I could take a trip up the coast before heading back to Michigan this spring. You won't need to ship it that way.
