Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

I have several sources for older parts, but I am at work right now, and my information is on my computer at home.

I can get you part numbers and suppliers when I get home this evening, if that will be acceptable.

Ok.

The part numbers that I have are as follows:

Starter - 0E04610

Air filter - G078601

Oil filter - 070185BS

All of these are available through any Generac dealer, as well as www.jackssmallengines.com

My books did not list a part number for the fuel pump, so I will have to contact my distributor tomorrow.

I just read your initial post again, and found out why I couldn't find a part number for the fuel pump.

You are missing a letter in the model series. The series is NP40LPG - this is an LP powered unit - there is no fuel pump.
