generator neutral bonding removal

Good morning all, I just joined today but have been looking at the website for a week or so..Alot of great information so thanks!
I have a KING model number KCG-7501GE generator - 7500W
Has anyone removed the neutral from this model before? Just looking to use the 240v/30A twist plug to power a 6-7500 Gould transfer switch for my house back up. The Generator will strictly be used for this purpose and the plug I mentioned will be the only plug used.
If I cant get to the neutral /ground connection of the generator easily, can I just remove the neutral wire connected to the twist plug 's back end I intend to use?
thanks for any feedback in advance

Daryl

I am not sure how to remove the neutral ground bond from this generator. I fyou can't do that easily then unhook and tape over the (green) ground from somewhere in the path between the generator and the transfer switch, for example in the twist plug.

You can actually get away without unhooking anything if the generator operates normally i.e. does not have a ground fault circuit interrupter tripping.

Thanks for the response Allan. I had some time today and found where the neutral was bonded to the ground right from the stator..I unscrewed the ground/neutral then did a continuity test between each ground/neutral of each plug to verify that I indeed disconnected the right wire.. all is good. Now I just have to figure out where to mount the junction box/transfer switch! lol
Thanks again
Daryl
