Can anyone show me a picture of where this generator tag goes on my generator? I thought I had a picture but can not find it.

wydtrac.....There are three terminals on the top of your generator. One is a screw with a small gray wire attached, which is the ground. The armature wire is the large brown wire attached with a nut. The field wire, which is the one you want to put the tag under, is the smaller dark blue wire. If everything is wired right, it should be the terminal closest to the rocker cover. Hope this helps......John

I figured you might know the answer to this one John. As always, thanks for your help!
Does it just sit there or do I somehow glue it in place?

I discovered the secret to attaching this label. There is a small lip around the base of this connection that you press the label down over and it holds it in place perfectly.

Kind of off topic, but where does that back bracket bolt to? The intake?

Thanks for the picture, that's handy, I'm just about ready to install my generator.

Yup, lines right up on a threaded hole on the intake manifold. With that offy though you're going to have to improvise unless there's one on there.

Ok thanks. I don't think the Offy has that threaded hole. Great, more improvising!
