Default Onan BGEF no ac current

I have a Onan 4000 genset, 4BGEFA26101F. When running, I am not getting any ac current. I've used a volt meter behind the control panel on the terminal block and tested for voltage off of L1, and L2. Nothing. Now what? Help! I could also use a service manual, if anyone out there has one. Thanks, Steve.

The above link "Should" get you the BGE manual to cover your spec. F unit. This should give you a place to start. The trouble shooting sections will give you step by step instruction. When you get stuck, the "Smart Guys" around here will pick up where the manual left off.
You will likley want to pull the cover off the gen-end & check the brushes & ALL connections. The spade terminals tend to get brittle on these units.
