Default Old Kohler Generator Controller

Have a 60 KW Hercules 6 diesel Kohler 3 phase generator fuel problem. Kohler Controller model A-284359 the fuel keeps shutting off automatically and I need a controller schematic for this to track down the problem as the one attached to the cover is damaged and cannot be read. This seems to be the problem although, the engine will continue to run if I open the bleeder on the injector pump-the return lines are clear and the fuel pump shows 40 lbs. it seems to be an electrical problem.

How old is the generator? Does it have a DC exciter generator sticking out of the back of the AC alternator. Sort of like the nipple on a baby bottle

If so, I have a generic schematic which may be of some use. I don't have one for a more modern set with a static exciter.

The fuel bleeding out keeping it running, sounds more like the fuel pump outlet check valve than an electrical problem.

Mike i think i have exact same generator, 60 kw diesel with
turbo hercules and has nipple piece at very end. My engine
runs good. Ck and see if 12v goes away at fuel shut off valve
when engine shuts down, If it does than run a jumper to it temporarily and see if problem goes away, then fix properly.
Send me pic of your machine and i will respond. Rich
