    anyone know a way take take the generator to 12v set-up? And what parts that are needed? really dont think i want to do it. But need to look into other options. First need to figure out the wireing on the gen to see if i can make it run 240v.

    o just got a 24v starter on ebay, so that is another reason not to take the time to make it 12v. But its always something to keep on the back burner.

    You'll need to be a bit more specific, what model generator? Most, if not all Mil Spec gen sets will also have 24v control circuits.
