I suspect this generac gen should have a additional 4 digit or so model number so as to ID the proper engine type?
I would think about checking the oil and if ok look into bypassing the low oil sensor.
The timing light procedure the guy mentioned will let you know if the engine is starving for fuel or if it's losing ignition.
If it;s ignition bypass the low oil sensore, if its gas related, there is usually a very fine screen filter on the petcock that is on the bottom of the fuel tank.
You can blow air backwards through the fuel line with the gas cap removed so as to temporarily remove the restriction
and clean the screened filters.
If the screens are clogged remove the fuel tank and clean all, if rusty replace tank.
