Default Little Kilowatt Generator

Hi all,
Looking for some info on a set I hauled home today. It is tagged "LITTLE KILOWATT" and rated at 400w/115v(DC as it only has a commutator). It looks all the world to be a Kohler engine with lots of subtle differences. Whomever stored it 40 years ago did me a huge favor as they filled the cylinder with oil. i was thrilled. The head gasket did not survive removal and I need to source one. It is almost but not quite the same bolt pattern as a Briggs 5S.

Mike, I believe the engine is a Clinton. If someone doesn't soon tell you the model from memory I'll find it with a little digging.

Enginenut,
You are correct. Its almost identical to a B-701 that I just pulled out of the shed. Now I can source a head gasket. Wish I could find a nice shroud and gas tank.
