Kawasaki GA1800A generator help

I have a old kawasaki ga1800a generator that runs good but there are 2 resistiors on the control pannel that are bad and it puts out about 180 volts. I cant find them any were. One of the resistor has 120v,115v,240v and common markings on it but it does not have the omes marked on it. the other is a veariable resistor that has 250 omes marked on it . A local electonic dealer said he could get the veariable resistor and if the the omes was on the other one he could get that to. would any one know were I could find what the omes are or were I could look for it? thanks for your time BillyC

Not familiar with Kawasaki, but most generators operate rated voltage at 3700rpm You may want to check your governed rpm and if less than3700 adjust it to that level and read again

Are there any colored bands on the resistor, if so this is the code for the resistance of it.
