For what its worth I went back through about 100 build sheet of magneciters and all seem to be 2, 3, or 4 wire. No 12 wire.

Well I finally got it. Had a little reprive with the rain but the wet ground helped it slide better with the winch pulling it.

This is a 3 phase, 3 wire Magneciter equipped machine. Note the model number contains "4R". No 12 wires in this puppy.

Could someone provide me a copy of a 12 lead Onan generator wiring diagram? I would like to see how those 12 leads are connected to the stator. Thanks.
