Default Kohler wiring diagram

I've gotten my 3.5E62 running after buying a new regulator for it.

It hung up #3 exhaust valve from lack of oil at early startup, but have since worked it free and it runs well.

Here are two pics of the box. I may have not asked for the right wiring diagram, or maybe I did?. 142426D on the illegible wiring diagram pasted on the lid

A243620 or 11615H5A? is on the metal tag shown

Dunno what the right one is......

Also the contactor shown, it appears that it was locked out. If you move the arm under the center, it then can be moved into place. I assume this would be used if the wires from it were floating on the line to sense loss??

First of all, this is not a Kohler controller, it's a Cutler-Hammer. The 142 number is probably the wiring diagram number, but short of getting someone at Kohler to pull a copy from the microfiche archives, they're not going to have it. It wouldn't be in the wiring diagram set given to dealers and distributors, either.

You might try eBay. The old Kohler manuals go for around $10, plus a couple bucks for shipping. Beware the gougers though. There’s one that popped up after you posted, but it is ridiculously priced. When you do find one, verify with the seller that the diagram for your model is in the manual.

All else fails, I have sorted them out by following each wire and making my own diagram. They’re really just several simple circuits working together. Have to identify all of the components, which we can probably do with some good photos.
