Default Waukesha 30GLB or 80GLB info needed

Good afternoon.
I am trying to find out specs and manuals for a Waukesha engine model, either 30GLB or 80GLB, tag is hard to read.
4 cyl, set up for gasoline on a Kohler 10r82 generator.

Quick search shows nothing for either model, Kohler model is pretty empty also.

Thanks

Marshall

You will likely get more help if you post this on the Kohler Power sub-forum.

I thought about posting over in Kohler land, but a quick search only brought up one thread, so I came over here to the Waukesha experts.

The unit in question will be up for auction first week in Nov. or so, Just trying to be a little more informed before I bid.

Go to www.enginads.com which is a sister to smokstak. Look on the left side of the page almost to the bottom for the Kohler Power sub-forum.

I'm far from a Wauk expert (I'm a Wauk dabbler maybe); your engine'll probably be a 130 or 180, both 4s; looks like
130 GL (don't show a GLB on my engine list, but doesn't mean there aren't any) is probably 33/4x5;
180GLB looks like 31/2x33/4...altho I have another catalog that shows the 130GL as a 4x5 and the 180GL as 35/16x31/2??? Parts catalogs don't always agree.
The "B", at that time, usually meant heavy duty and/or other refinements like counterbalanced crankshaft etc when used in designations like 180GL and 180GLB.
Manuals are usually on EBay (search Waukesha manuals) or may be available thru the Wauk Eng Hist Soc (wehs.net). They have manuals no longer available thru local/regional dealers, but no parts. I Don't have anything with any real specs, nor do I have personal knowledge of the availability (or non-availability) of parts for these thru the normal local outlets.

130GL was 4" bore x 5" stroke made in the 40s, very few built. Nameplate shows 3-1/2" bore (3-3/4" stroke not very readable) which says it was a 180GLB made in the 50s, many built. As Bud said no GLB version of the 130 was made. Definitely a 180GLB

Your 180 GLB is a kissing cousin to an Oliver engine. Early engines (Oliver model 66 had the 3-5/16 inch bore. Later Oliver engines (Super 55 & Super 66 ) had the 3-1/2 inch bore.

Bud, Dennis and John.

Thanks for all your info.
Should know within a couple of days if this jewel is going to follow me home. If it does I will take some pics and post them.
