I have an older kohler single cylinder 4000 watt generator

Customer Question

I have an older kohler single cylinder 4000 watt generator hard wired to our deer camp in the mountains it has served us well for years. Recently after about 20 minutes the lights in our camp go out, the generator doesn't labor like a short. I can turn off the generator and restart it and lights come back on. Is this a rectifier problem?

Sorry, I am going to have to opt out of this one. The 4CM is a very odd unit, and has some parts that no other unit has. I have no experience with this unit.
