You should find out which wires are you excitation fields and flash them with a 9volt battery. That should make 120 volts

SOURCE: i get no 110 or 220 volt power
generac was purchased by Briggs Stratton some years ago, however some information is available at the following web address, just enter your model number:
The small board that you describe is the bridge rectifier that converts ac from the windings to dc for the armature. You can test the brush/board by removing the part from the generator and applying 12 to 16 volts ac to the input tabs/wires then test/read dc (dc voltage will be lower than input ) voltage at the brushes. Use meter to make sure that you are getting dc. I use a small power supply less than one amp that I purchased at the thrift store for a couple of dollars. If test fails replace part. If it tests ok re-install brushes and re-connect the ac power supply to brush/board which in turn will energize the armature. At this point test the armatrue for magnetic power. I use a thin welding rod or wire against armature. If you feel a magnet start the engine. If the windings are good you should get some voltage at the plugs and the two wires that feed the brushes (will not be full voltage). If voltage is present, kill engine and disconnect ac power supply and connect the original wires to brushes/board and start engine. If you now have voltage at plugs you spiked the system indirectly by energising the armature. If still no voltage you may have an open circuit that feeds the brushes or diode pack is failing with the incresased voltage. Good luck with your repair and email if you have questions.

What can happen with these generators is there is a shield built into them to devert the heat that is produced but it is still released into the surrounding components and causes a plastic rain guard to melt slightly around the edges and the melted plastic fuses to the armature and causes voltage drop through the brushes due to lack of contact. It is a relatively simple fix but it requires a rebuild kit that can be purchased aftermarket through your local generator dealer. It provides instructions for the rebuild but are often times confusing and it is usually cheaper in the long run and less hassel to let the dealer install the rebuild kit for you. If you do decide to attempt this yourself there is an 800 number provided where it can be registered and it will allow you to access schematics online for this rebuild. Hope this helps, good luck!
