Default Onan DJC wiring id

I have an Onan 12.0 DJC diesel generator. I am told that it came out of a rig manufactured in Canada. There is no ID plate on the unit, just a decal that has all but the DJC part smeared off..

I am wiring it as a backup generator, and I am wondering if anyone can help me figure out what line is what. I have a pretty good idea, but the electrician want to know for sure.. It is a single phase 120/240 unit. I have to legs that are hot, another leg tied to the ground, and of course a ground.. If I am remembering right, the neutral bonding needs to be un-done before wiring to the panel. The lines in the generator have markings on them like L4, (sorry I don't have the actual markings handy) Does someone have a wiring schematic that lists what identifiers go to what line?

James,

That looks like what I need. Just to check myself, as I read it, T1 and T4 are hot legs and T2 and T3 would be ground and neutral?

T2 and T3 get attached together as the neutral for 120/240. If you also attach them to ground then it is bonded which you may or may not want to do depending on your specific hook up situation.
