HOW TO RESOURCE: PREPARING YOUR BOLIY GENERATOR FOR STORAGE



In this section, you will find information on the following:

DRAINING SYSTEM OF FUEL
PREPARING FUEL TANK FOR STORAGE
PREPARING ENGINE FOR STORAGE
STORAGE TIPS


If your Boliy generator will be sitting unused for 4 months or longer, manufacturer recommends taking long term storage precautions to guard against fluid deterioration and internal damage.


DRAINING SYSTEM OF FUEL:

TIP: the Boliy operation manual specifies that prepping fuel tank for storage requires its removal from generator. Precautions cited(i.e. treating tank with engine oil to prevent rust formation) are especially helpful for metal fuel tanks.

If you choose to follow these guidelines, no harm done. However we believe them to be superfluous. A plastic tank, such as found on your Boliy Pro Series generator, should be fine for storage if simply drained of existing fuel.

With this in mind, we have included here an extended set of instructions, and an alternative shorter set of instructions which require much less preparation time, and which we believe to be sufficient for this generator model!


DRAINING FUEL SYSTEM(EXTENDED VERSION):

Extended version will require removal of back, side, and top generator panels, plus fuel tank. For assistance, see how to section BOLIY TROUBLESHOOTING: CASING.

To drain fuel from system, do the following:

A)With fuel tank removed, unhook plastic clamp and allow fuel to empty through fuel line.

TIP: to avoid a mess or fuel spill requiring cleanup, have pan or container ready to accept fuel before releasing plastic clamp.

B)With tank unattached, turn fuel cock(located beneath recoil start) to ON, and allow motor to run until it stops. This should fully empty lines.

C)To drain excess fuel from carburetor float bowl, loosen drain plug screw attached to plastic drainage tube exiting back panel of generator. Drainage screw can be reached with flathead screwdriver through upper left hole of ventilation grid in back panel.

CAREFUL: not to remove screw completely; to replace it, back panel of generator will need to be pulled.

TIP: try shining flashlight beam through sparkplug door in back panel to help you see drainage screw!


PREPARING FUEL TANK FOR STORAGE:

D)With tank removed from engine and fuel line stopped up, remove gas cap and pour in 1 cup of 10W 30 or 10W 40 weight motor oil. Shake tank vigorously for 30 seconds.

Remove stop from fuel line and allow excess oil to empty. This process provides a protective coating to interior of tank.

TIP: when you refuel generator for first time after it comes from storage, the small amount of engine oil coating tank will mix with gas to create smoky exhaust. This will persist until oil is flushed from system, and will not otherwise affect generator operation.


DRAINING FUEL SYSTEM(SHORT VERSION):

TIP: if lots of unburned fuel remains in tank, try using siphon to remove prior to following the steps listed below.

If no siphon is available, it may be simpler to remove tank from engine to drain(for instructions on tank removal, see how to section BOLIY TROUBLESHOOTING: CASING).

To drain fuel from system for long term storage, do the following:

A)Turn fuel cock(located beneath recoil start) to ON.

B)Start engine and allow to run until it stops. This will empty tank and fuel lines.

C)To drain excess fuel from carburetor float bowl, loosen drain plug screw attached to plastic drainage tube exiting back panel of generator. Drainage screw can be reached with flathead screwdriver through upper left hole of ventilation grid in back panel.

CAREFUL: not to remove screw completely; to replace it, back panel of generator will need to be pulled.

TIP: try shining flashlight beam through sparkplug door in back panel to help you see drainage screw!


PREPARING ENGINE FOR STORAGE:

REMEMBER: that draining oil from engine prior to storage is not necessary. But when generator comes from storage, before you refuel and run it again, oil will need to be replaced.

To prepare engine for long term storage, do the following:

A)Remove sparkplug from cylinder. Into sparkplug hole pour small amount(approximately 1 tablespoon) of 10W 30 or 10W 40 weight motor oil.

B)Reinstall plug; with engine switch OFF, use recoil start to gently turn over engine 2 to 3 times.

C)Gently pull on recoil start one final time, but only until you begin to feel the force of compression.

This indicates that piston is in ascending position, where you want it to be for storage.


STORAGE TIPS:

A)If your generator has metal frame and panels, before storing, apply a rust inhibitor.

TIP: if your generator possesses polyurethane panels, you may still wish to apply rust inhibitor to external screws, nuts, or bolts!

TIP: avoid spraying rust inhibitor or any other liquid onto control panel around outlets or switches; this can cause corrosion on electrical connections.

B)Store generator in a dry, well ventilated place; use either a generator cover or other protection that guards against dust, debris, and condensation.

TIP: during storage, keep generator in a vertical or upright position, just as you would if it was being operated or transported!
