This manual lists service replacement parts for8.5/11RMY and 8.5/12RES generator sets.At the time of print this manual applied to the generatorset specification (spec) numbers listed in theSpecification Number Index. On occasion this manualmay apply to specs not listed in the SpecificationNumber Index.Information in this publication represents data availableat the time of print. Kohler Co. reserves the right tochange this publication and the products representedwithout notice and without any obligation or liabilitywhatsoever.This manual includes the following main sections:
Table of Contents.
Lists the sections of the manual.

Numbering System Significance
This manual uses the following numbering systems:
The product identificationnumber located on the generator set nameplate.Specification numbers break down into groups.
Auniquenumberrepresentingapartsgroupneededtoassembleageneratorsetfunction. Forexample, Group 101 is the Air Intake group.
Variation or Module Number.
A group might haveseveral variations. Each variation performs the samefunction with different parts lists. For example, a 50 Hzgenerator alternator and a 60 Hz generator alternatorboth perform the same function; however, with differentparts. Each difference requires a group variation ormodule number.
The part number identifies an individualassembly, subassembly, component, or accessory kit.
Illustrations (or exploded-view drawings) bestrepresenting the widest range of variations accompanymostgroupsinthismanual. Illustrationsdonotdepictalldetails and may not show all parts. Do not useillustrations for assembly or disassembly.
How to Find Part Numbers

Many common hardware items do not appear in partsmanualsorwillappearascommonhardwareentries. A common hardware entry lists the size of the hardware.For example, an item that appears as “Hardware,3/8-16” in the text means that the piece is 3/8-16 size.Obtain common hardware locally or, if contacting thefactory,usetheCommonHardwareListintheappendixto identify the common hardware part number andspecifications. See Common Hardware ApplicationGuidelines in the appendix for mating hardwareinstructions.Some hardware items require a specific size or someother characteristic. In that case, use the part numberlisted in the text.
