    Hi All, Just got a used 4000 watt Homelite Generator with 120/240 volts (no manual)-need the 240 to run my deepwell sub pump. It has 4 plugs for the 120 volts but nothing for the 240 volt. So how do I get 240 out of it? Looks like Ivan is heading directly toward us (we are 40 miles directly north of Panama City), need to figure this out soon! Thanks in advance! Daryll in NW FLA
