Question what engine does this have?

I have an onan electric plant generator on a skid.
was recently aquired from a friend who know's nothing about it.
it was left to them through a death in the family.

It's a mo.# 2.5LK-1R/6000J Sn.# 3072422683
120v. a.c. single phaze 2.5 Kw. 2500Watt
Pf.1.0 20.8 amp. 60 Hz. 1800 rpm.
w/12v. electric start

All this is on the tag, but no referance anywhere about what engine this is or what H.P. rating.
Anyone able to shed some light on it for me?

Thanks Billy,
I appretiate the info, however, me being quite the novice, I could still use a little more guidance.
Can you tell me more on the engine, or how to find out more, such as displacement, horsepower and the such?
Thanks again, in advance.
