Thanks for requesting me.
Bad timing,though. I am leaving for a trip to Texas tomorrow afternoon, and am at work until 7 tonight.
I will see what I can do in the meantime, though. I may not be able to respond until later this evening, if that's ok.
If you are good with that, what is the full model number of the genset, and what is the issue you are having?
