Hello everyone, I have a Generac/Honeywell generator with model number 0060391 and serial number 6538439A.  I've also attached a picture of the whole nameplate if that helps anyone.

I'm after three things;
1) Torque value for cylinder head bolts.
2) Torque value for the loooooong bolt that holds the generator rotor onto the crankshaft.
3) I broke one of the brushes when I was pulling off the stator, can I buy just the carbon insert piece or do I have to buy a whole new brush?  Not the most expensive piece in the world, just curious.
4) When I reassemble the stator onto the rotor, there's a bearing that rides in the stator housing, back by the brushes that I broke. 🙂 Do I need to preventatively grease that or anything while it's off?

Thanks for the help everyone!

I like seeing how stuff breaks, so if you're in the same boat I've attached a picture of my busted head.

Hi farmerjg, let me get some torque specs for the 410 engine, that will be as close as I have and they used them for 7-8kw home stand by units so I would think the rotor bolt would be a close comparison.

Awesome, thank you!

Well, I thought I saw head bolt torque somewhere but can't find it. Stator bolts are 6 ft.lbs., rotor bolt is 30 ft.lbs., figure out the head bolt diameter and consult a chart on the net 25-30 lbs. should be in the ballpark, the rotor bearing is sealed for life - good luck in getting any grease in it. I would buy a new set of brushes/brush holder.

Thank you for the info, I appreciate it.

I return with one more question!  What lash do you set your inlet/exhaust at?  Maintenance manual says to check it, but never provides the values.

With a cold engine adjust both valves to .002 - .004 inch.

Thanks buckshot!  That seems tight, but my experience is on cars.  Are small engines usually lashed tighter just due to less growth from less material?

All I know is for the last 20 years those have been the specs for Generac's generator singles and twins. The exhaust tends to get a little closer with use due to the face or seat sinking, the intake stays pretty good.
