As long as the battery from your Simplicity has as many or more cold cranking amps, or CCA, as the battery on your generator you should be able to jump start it with jumper cables, but you would need...

I don't know if this is a hypothesis or a recap of an actual phone conversation, but would certainly hope the former. I can't imagine anyone at the power company minimizing this, but if they did or...

I have used tees or other splinters any number of times to repair "a" damaged screw hole, but in a case like this, lots of wear over lots of years, and most likely all of the holes worn to at least...

Good job! On both the results and the perseverance. It's the latter that sometimes gets overlooked, but when you get into something like this, that's what it takes... try, try, try again until you...

Welcome. I would be looking for a damaged or disconnected ignition kill wire. You should find a spade in the vicinity of the ignition side of the engine and sometimes it's as simple as the wire that...

Maybe, but, playing the odds, probably not. Most likely you just need the cartridge. If you contact Moen they will help you identify it, and send you a cartridge, at no charge. If you don't have...
