the geni needs not more amp,

Interesting as, just looking at the size of the starters, I would “guess” the engine would require more amp than the generator to start…
If the engine starts, could it be poor/degraded electrical connection to the generator?
Would be interesting to measure voltage, etc.

Yes it's possible for the starting battery to
start the engine but not the generator. When I bought our
SM the starting battery was almost dead. The engine would
start fine but the generator would not start at all. We had
to start the engine first in order the start the generator
until we changed out the battery.
