Double check your brush istallation. positive side toward rotor bearing, if you put 12 vdc directly into brush pack and check with a meter at the 120 vac outlet and have low or no voltage, you may have no resistance in your rotor slip rings, excitor & main windings also need a resistance check. 12.6-16.7 ohms (rotor) 2.26-2.80 ohms (excitation) .26-.32/.28-.35 main or power windings. Note: unit running when appling 12 volts to brush pack. 2-5 second only, ( This test tells you the rotor & stotor are ok )

Not sure what you mean by "plugnit into circuit"
This is a stand alone unit into which you plug the devices that you wish to power. It should have standard recepticls for your devices.
If you are talking about attaching it to your residence, that will require a cutover switch that will disconnect the outside hydro source while the generator is plugged in. That's a job for a certified electrician.

There is no such thing as "remagnatized" thats horrible and stupid advice. Your engine once started turns an alternator, which that produces electricity. Check all wiring connections first, if everything looks okay, you may need to replace the alternator.

if your plug and outlet are 4 blade, two blades will be flat, the black will connect to one flat blade and the red will connect to the other flat blade,makes no differance to which,the white will connect to the middle blade with a silver color screw terminal,the others will always be brass in color!,the green will connect to the blade that is either "L" shaped or round.looking at the male plug from the blade side it looks like a crows foot,top left blade will be at 11 oclock,right blade will be at 1 oclock,these two are critical, one must be black the other must be red, center is white, other is green. good luck.

Take the pulley to any auto parts store and they should be able to match it up. good luck.

My answer:

Believe it or not HFT (Harbor Freight Tools), which has local outlet stores in most big cities and is online as well (not sure where you are located), has a ton of various mountable tire/wheel assys in stock.

Some are swivel plate mounted - some are fixed plate type - and some wheels are just stand alone for axle-thru type mounted shafts of various diameters.

They even have a 13HP Genset wheel kit p/n 94192 for $24.99 online, and possibly the same price in-store if they indeed do stock it in-store. You just have to call a local HFT store and find out.

Prices can't be beat, and even though most everything there is made in China they do have some pretty good stuff there.

There is one other alternative if they don't have it in-store, and you really want to save a few bucks.

You yourself can make the same wheel kit set-up for under $15 if you are handy with metal working, and have a metal supply house near you.

If your Genset frame already has the axle hole plates welded onto the frame like I believe they all do today - then just buy the steel axle rod in whatever diameter rod is needed, and whatever length you need to clear the frame plus the added 2 wheels with 2 washers and 2 clearance bushings, and then just drill 2 cotter pin centered holes (1 on each end of the axle), and it's a done deal - all except for attaching any old metal type handle assy from maybe some old discarded gardening implement or possibly an older metal handled snow shovel for example. Just cut it down to size, bend according to fit the frame and bolt it on with 2 sturdy nut/bolt & lock washer assys. Done deal!!!

Just buy the 2 wheels anywhere that sells them cheaply, or else hunt some used ones down at a garage sale or thrift store maybe.

I made my own wheel kit setup on my own personal 5500W 10HP Generac Genset, and used the HFT pneumatic 10" tires when they were on sale for 1/2 price at $3 each. Axle rod - cotter pins (2) - washers (6) - axle spacer bushings (2) - custom hand made recycled handle & misc nut/bolt hardware all cost me under $10.

Labor cost - PRICELESS!

Please post me a reply as to finding this solution being the best resolve to your wheel kit problem there by following my recommendations above. Also please rate my troubleshooting fix as well.

Keep me posted and I'll follow up as well.

Best regards,
