1st Tune Up of Our Bosco Generator

Finally, I was able to find the first picture of our Bosco Generator but I’m not posting it here. That’s the latest picture, by the way.

We bought it last 19 April 2017 and last 16 June 2021, I decided to finally tune it up because it sounds awful already.

It has been used probably 100 hours, more or less due to frequent brownouts courtesy of the incompetency of some people.

It did not even function last 24 October 2020. After buying gasoline to refill it and driving half-blind because it was night already and Boogie’s headlights were not functioning, Bosco did not function. And, its carburetor needed to be sprayed with Carburetor cleaner, then it functioned.

On its first major tune up, first, I washed its filter using soap and then wrapped it with fiber clothe. This is also recommended on its manual.

Second, I checked the spark plug if one of my spare spark plugs is compatible or almost similar to it. Unfortunately, it was not so I just sanded it (niliha) for cleaning purposes.

Third, I changed its oil. It was really dirty already. I had to bolt it again because I forgot the washer which fell in the container.

Fourth, I refilled it with unleaded gasoline.

Finally, I tested it and it sounded good already.

After four years, it finally received its first tune up.

And this is one of our valuable asset especially since our income relies from online tasks.

This is really a highly recommended investment.
