Can't search for a manual without model, type, serial, etc numbers...
A few things to take a look at:
1) Oil level / pressure sending unit. This is normally bypassed as long as the start switch is pressed. When engine starts, and switch is released, engine will die if sending unit is defective, or you are low on oil.
2) Exhaust temperature sensors. Older units were notorious for burning these up.
3) Cooling Water Temperature sensor. These cause trouble often, but mostly due to water pump impeller being eaten away by galvanic action and not able to pump water as effecively. End result is water temp higher than normal, which trips the switch, which kills the engine.
4) Alternator (generator) output not as it should. If output doesn't rise to proper level within a few seconds of engine start, the engine will be shut down.
5) Choke not working as it should
6) Bad fuel, bad fuel pump, clogged fuel filter.

change the temp sensor and re test the gen set these have a bord that senses if theirs a issue with the engine and will cut the bower to the get head so theirs no load on some mod's then when the temp reaches a higher point they shut down. re-post is this does not fix the issue i will review the books on the unit.
hope this helps

Hello, ushicks/me hillybilly. One question how old is the fuel in then generator tank,Hey. If it has a fuel filter replace it. Modern gasoline is junk fuel and after a few months it looses some chemical proprieties. GB...stewbison
