Hello and Welcome Hoffman01 to the Do-It-Yourself Web Site and the Small Engine forum.

First off, there is no question that is stupid. :NO NO NO: This site is here to offer helpful suggestion and professional advice whenever possible.

Why your question remains unanswered is beyond me... Very possible the small engine service techs on the site are very busy this season in their own shops......and or buried up to their eye balls in SNOW!!!......

A few possible suggestions and or solutions is in order.

If you're unable to locate an exact service manual online, try off line. I am not all that fond of buying parts and or shop manuals online for the very reason your describing and a few other reasons. Especially when unsure of exactly what is needed.

Possible solutions could be to call Honda's customer service number. Can be found on their web site. An in person visit to your local Honda dealer or any small engine repair shop that services the brand and maybe also sells the brand. Might not be as quick, convenient, and or easy. But an in person visit to a dealer will surely provide you with the service needed, IMO.

Other possible sources listed below:

Potential sources for manuals and or replacement parts:
Small engine repair parts, generic repair manuals and additional help are all available at all local small engine repair shops and or lawn mower repair shops in your area. Shops and dealers are listed in the phone book directory.

Additional sources for manuals and or replacement parts:


L.S.THORPE CO. INC. 1-617-776-2445

Here is a link to the operators manual, post what engine is on the generator and we wiil see if we can find any engine manuals, it is probably a GX something 10-11hp. Have a good one, Geo.
