Default New Guy from NH, resurrecting 15.0JC

I've been watching this group for a while.....after picking up a (I think) 1971 vintage 15.0JC 4R generator. The unit has not been used in a few years.....has gas/gasoline setup.....and came complete with LP regulator. I have removed all of the mouse nests.....have freed up the frozen engine....checked out ignition.....connected propane.....and fired it up! A little smoky at first, (WD40 in cylinders)....but runs good.....except for a few issues. I have the operators manual...and parts manual...but there is no wiring diagram or schematic. Whats the best way to get my hands on a copy...so I can straighten out the control wiring (ignition relay stuck....and I just want to understand all the unmarked wire connections!)

Looks like a great site....with a some knowledgeable gearheads onboard!

Jim
