Interesting generator repair

Generac gp7500E. This is big heavy gererator. It was dropped during transportation with the fuel valve open. The engine would not turn over after being dropped. The crankcase was filled with fuel,cylinder was fuel locked. This model has a electric solenoid on the carburetor.

It took the perfect storm for this to happen. The anti backfire solenoid failed, float failed, engine was on intake stroke,machine was tilted tword cylinder.

Scary to think what would have happened if the machine was not fuel locked and started. Crankcase filled with fuel, Gonna have a bad time.
