the generator is a Kohler model 3.5MM65 s/n 124814 spec 14387A engine is K181
Technician: Hank F., Technician replied 2 years ago

I have a very extensive library of generator manuals, but this is one I do not personally have.

I have done some research for you, though, and have found a service manual that is available for it.

Click here to see the manual.

I have also located a parts manual for it.

Click here to see it.

As far as if certain parts are still available, you will need to contact your nearest Kohler dealer.
