I have a 327 that after i pump up  and open the fuel valve I get fuel seeping out  from the top of the R 55 generator. After the fireball dies  down it goes nice and bright and burns well.
Any thoughts?

so that means you are getting fuel through the pickup. That's a good sign. It's not plugged. Try one of the small torches (blazer) from Amazon and heat the generator with it. While heating it, open the valve a little and see if you get light.

I was opening it too much. That was the problem. Opening and shutting 1sec. did the trick. 
Thx guys
