Default Homelite G-7200 Generator Questions

Hi everyone. I've been looking through smokstak for a long time but i finally have a question i can't find an answer for. I picked up a homelite g-7200 generator recently. it has a Kohler k-582 engine and it rated at 7200 watts. It runs and makes power but i found that the circuit breaker isn't hooked up so i was looking for a wiring diagram to try and unscramble what someone else did. Also would just like to know more about it. For instance theres what looks to be a small little solenoid on the carb that i have no idea what it does. Does anyone have any info or experience with these units? Haven't had much luck turning anything up on them.
Thanks!

I don't know anything about your unit.
But solenoids on carburetors are a different story.

Depends on where on the carburetor the solenoid is.
If it's connected to the speed butterfly someway it's for a slowing engine speed down when there's no load to conserve fuel.

If it's a newer one and on the bottom of the float bowel it's to shut off the gasoline flow when you shut the unit off for pollution purposes.

Its neither of those. I'm familiar with standard stuff like that. This goes into the spot where on the old Kohler carbs i think the idle circuit air bleed screw would go. I was thinking it might be an start enrichment circuit that works in conjunction with the choke but i wasnt sure as I've never seen anything like this before on a small engine.
