Kohler 7.5KW generator manifold end cap #241278

A Kohler 7.5KW generator common killer is a rotted out manifold end cap, #241278. It fits onto the end of the heat exchanger and there were (I thought) none around for replacement. So one's options were limited to scrapping the generator that works fine other than with a heat exchanger problem or having the failed end cap re manufactured in a machine shop.
THERE IS HOPE!

I am on their waiting list for a newly manufactured part, should be available in about a month or so. So if any members have this problem, contact wavetop.

I am going to post this elsewhere to help others

Thanks, Fog. I'm sure this will assist some Kohler gen set owners.

My Kohler already has that repair done years ago. And, I did copy page as well as link into my Kohler folder... just in case for future needs!
