Help with finding zincs

I have a 1989 Carver 4207 with a Kohler 8KW Diesel Generator. I don't have the manual nor any diagrams showing the location of the zinc(s). Any help would be appreciated.

There will only be zincs in the raw water cooling system so look for brass plugs. I'm sorry, I don't have a manual.

You may have to look further...many engines have the plugs painted over or many with no paint and most are just drain plugs,,,on a genset shouldn't be too bad as there may just be the exchanger and no coolers.

Some people, mechs, manufacturers are nice enough to paint the caps red.
