Default Homelight Generator Model 178A50-1B

New to this forum. I picked up a Homelight 178A50-1B generator and need an operation manual. Does anyone have one for sale or can copy one for me?

Thanks
Walt Beeman

Some of you might have one of these, it has a 70's era 10 horse briggs. I need points and condsor for it. The numbers on the flywheel cover appear to be (0?)243431-0681-01-8003141, I can't find any reference to get the briggs model. Does anyone know what model number to use to get the correct parts? Thanks for any help.

Here is an exact match I found on youtube

www.briggsandstratton.com has the owners manual for your engine, but I did not see a Parts List.

Hi Walt,

The Briggs guys on this site should be able to point you in the right direction with those numbers from your engine. You might try posting it over in the small air cooled engine section. I have a few Briggs engines, but am not really as well versed in them as others.

Any issues with the generator, we can figure out over here.
