I have a Yanmar 10hp diesel 6.5 KW genset. It appears that the red tipped STOP lever is missing. Other photos of this Northstar 6500 show it missing too. Is it necessary?

If you could give me the source of Brian's diagrams of the throttle assembly, or email them, it would be a big help. Thanks in advance.

your manual red lever is missing. That is what would lock the governor at the set 3600rpm. If you have the electric solenoid as the picture shows that is what would push the lever to the right and hold it at 3600 when you start the engine. The governor lever should move to the right and a little lever with a red knob on it should pop up and hold it. I have a L90 engine and it has the red lever and the electric solenoid.

one question I have is what make is your generator? I have no name plate on mine, all it says is 4800 watts....very hard to get parts without knowing who made the generator itself.
