Default Help Identifying a Dayton generator mated to a Wisconsin TFD

Howdy friends,
I rescued this genset last week mostly because I was super excited to get my hands on another THD.
The genset is working and I am going to restore this beauty as a potential standby for my home. Problem is there is no tag on the generator head. I have scoured this entire forum and the internet for days looking for at least a similar model. I have looked and looked again around the entire barrel and there is no tag other than the painted stuff on the outlet panel.

It has two (120) outlets and one (230) outlet
Exciter start button on the top.
Dayton 5000Kw. Cat No. 1W541
Based on searches, I believe this is 4 head, 1800RPM 60cycle unit. I tried the Grainger route and they didn't recognize the catalog number. Also have been looking for a winco model number but without a name plate on the front, I cant seem to nail this down. The back side of the outlet box has only 3 terminals. (Start wires and Slow charge wires) There are no volt gauges or other switches.
Any chance one of you fine folks recognize this little fella or knows where I can source some paperwork?
