I’m submitting the repair of this generator as part of the oddball badge. Someone (me) forgot to check the oil in the generator before running it. The bearing on the connecting arm ended up seizing. It was a $40 lesson that could have been more if I wasn’t handy. It took me 4 hours to do repair it. If taken to a shop it would have taken a pro 2 hours to repair.
I have a video of the generator running, but couldn’t upload it.
