This comes from gas getting from the carb when the engine is stopped. The carb will need a good cleaning. Kawasaki has vent tubes just to avoid this when air venting gets plugged. Just saying. ..

Asked about my generator the other day it was in the shed for quite awhile took it out and tried to start it but would not start what should I do?

does it have a choke setting on the throttle may need to run with choke until warm. Also check fuel line for tap as tap may be in off for fuel. check if any kill switch as may be active. may need to change the fuel in the fuel tank as fuel goes off over a period of time.

Iv found an old honda petrol generator in my dads shed. It said the model is gx160 5.5 markon motor. The problem is I started the thing ok but when I stopped it and checked the dipstick for oil it started...

There are a couple of possibilities
-someone put too much oil in it.
-the carb float stuck and gas ran into the oil.
If it sat for awhile, a gunked up carb is almost guaranteed.
Pretty much no other way for too much oil.
Clean the carb, make sure the float is not sticking, Put the correct amount of oil in it, and run it.

3650 generator won't start!!

I assume that the spark plug are good and the gas line is clear. Try to adjust the gas line supply and default engine startup revolution settings try it full half and minimum back and forth it works. Other gen sets requires a mix of oil with its gas, please do it when it is required with exact proportion. Hope this helps. Goodluck.

Your carburator is gummed up !
Take the float bowl on the bottom of the carb and spray the main fuel jet out with cleaner, do this to the idle needle valve also. If that don't work pull the carb & take apart & soak overnight in parts cleaner & blow out all ports & orfices with compressed air.
Next time you store your generator with gas in it , use a fuel stabilizer !
Good luck !
