Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
What is the full model number of the genset?
I need the rest of the model number - especially the letter at the end.
Your model number will be 4BGE-FA/26100 and then a single letter.
There are 19 different variations of the BGE units, and 3 different types of ignition systems were used.
I need that letter to know which ignition system you have.
Even though it is faded, you can still read it.
Get a strong flashlight, and hold the light at an angle to the data label, while looking from a different angle.
You will be able to see the "shadow" of where the letter was.
That is so close - but I need that letter after the "26100".
I have no idea what the Z6 is.
Look on top of your genset, right in the middle between the engine and generator.
Do you see a small metal box, about the size of a cigarette pack, standing on its side?
It may have a wire bail holding it down, or a single screw in the middle.
