Customer Question
I have an Onan 12kw...

I have an Onan 12kw diesel generator 12MDJC-3R/2268R single phase, 120/240 v 60 cycle 1800rpm, with less than 10 vols of output. An engineer suggested bypassing the magneciter and using an after-market power regulator. Where can I get this done? I'm in Connecticut. ********.
