I know this is an old post but i have this genset also.
Manual is TM-5-6115-345-35
The problem you describe sounds similar to what mine was doing.
The voltage adj pot was open and several other transistors in the voltage reg and governor unit were shorted.
Easy fix after i found the problem.
e mail me if you need schematics--- daleearnhardtjr at comcast dot net

Hi Guys

I don't mean to hi-jack your thread here, but I have kato military generator end that doesn't appear to have a voltage regulator. I am trying to locate one or see if one can be made. Is there another regulator that can be used? Here is a link to some pics of it for FYI. Thanks BTW I have been trying to contact KATO but they aren't responding.

Question Re: Military gen info & manuals

This is reviving a real old post, but I need some info again. With Raymond's help and modification idea I got my generator working, have been using it as a standby since then. A few months ago when I was doing my monthly test, it ran up over 300 volts and shut down on overvoltage.

I opened it up, found a mouse nest on top of the regulator board. Removing it and cleaning did not help the problem. I then found 3 transistors that were bad and replaced them.

Yesterday I fired it back up, it is generating again. The problem is that I now have to run it at about 55 hz for proper voltage output. I am wondering if my repairs fixed my original issue also, so would like to put back to original to test output.

The original modification I did was to put a power resistor across terminals A and B on the E1700 regulator. I disconnected a jumper wire from somewhere, which is still attached on one end to terminal A. I did not take pictures or write down where the jumper was moved from back in 2005. It looks like it went from A to B, but can't be sure.

Does anyone have a print they can look at or a picture of the regulator board to see where this jumper goes?
