Default Kohler - Model 6.5 A manuals?

From my last post trying to figure out what part "smoked" in my control box the best guesses are the "transformer". Does anyone have or know where to find a manual/diagram so that I can verify this and maybe get some specs on the transformer?

My unit is a 1969 marine kohler

Model 6.5 A27 50227D

Ser. No. 312171

6.5 KW

I've searched through the archives on this forum and haven't found anything specific to the 6.5 marine of this vintage any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, does anyone know of a shop or service place with knowledge of these units in the Tulsa or Langley Oklahoma area?

There is a saturable reactor and a transformer in this controller as it's an automatic controller. You're going to have to be more specific about the part you suspect to have failed.

For that matter, has someone with an understanding of the controller done some troubleshooting? You can't just throw parts at these and expect them to wrk - you'll end up very poor and without a functioning generator.
