Customer Question
Hi, I just got...

Hi, I just got online to get a service manual for my Mitsubishi MGE5800. Engine is fine but the generator crapped out. Possibly the voltage regulator? I have electronic experience.

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Just happened this morning.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yup.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I can think of. Regulator part number, I suppose.
