Default Genco help

I picked up a 4hp Genco engine and generator a while back. Unfortunately,
when to machine was removed from service they simply cut all the wires about
4 inches above the generator. The electrical box must have been discarded
because it was nowhere to be found.

The engine and generator are free and turn easily. I would like to set up a simple display with some lights, batteries, and volt meter. However, I cannot find a wiring diagram showing which wire on top of the generator should be connected where to connect the batteries for starting, the 32 VDC output, and other connections.

Does anyone have a wiring diagram or possibly another machine where the wires can be traced properly? I can send pictures of what I have and the wires exiting the generator.

Doug

Thank you for all the material on the Genco. This should really help.

Do you have one with the control box?
