Gunter, that's the same method I used to get a replacement regulator for my old Kohler. Someone was selling the generator parts because he only wanted the motor for some project.

I'm glad you found something that's working.

One thing I found odd was my original Voltage Regulator which are encapsulated had a capacitor and a resistor in series soldered between the + and - terminals. It appeared it was that way from the factory. The one that came out of the Generator I just purchased and the serial number is 1,000 larger does not have this addition. I wonder what the purpose of the cap/resistor was and what affect it has on the voltage output?
On a side note I now have numerous spare parts with the purchase of the complete used Generator assembly. The problem now is finding a place to store it.
