DeVilbiss GT5250 Generator Wiring

Posted by debryant none (My Page) on

I have a DeVilbiss GT5250 generator. Wires to the switch have been disconnected. There are 3 wires: green wire and 2 black wires. Green is shortest, one black wire is low oil shutdown, and the other black wire is attached to screw on frame. There are two negative and one positive connections at switch marked. Which of the other wires is positive? I cannot find a wiring diagram for this switch anywhere. Please help.

green by default is the hot. Mount the switch and see by fit which goes where. Trace the green back to see where it comes from. A test light is easy way to find hots.
