Wow, you've got an ugly problem. It sounds like you already know that you have to pretty much disassemble these little buggers down to the frame to see anything inside, so I'll say what to look for:
1 - Burned wires in the part of the generator that doesn't move. This is the bit that carries the current shorted out by the mud.
2 - Burned wires in the part that does move. This is the bit that makes the magnetism that makes the electricity. There are also some diodes and MOVs tucked into the end of the plastic insulator
You're likley better off getting some other generator, sorry.

First thing to monitor is the fuel solenoid power. See if it is the thing that goess away to cause shutdown.
Tracing this back there is only a few things that control this: The battery, the low oil shutdown switch, and the run switch, and associated wiring.
If I were to ventture a guess, I would put money on the low oil shutdown switch.

If it's still under warranty take it back to the retailer and tell them it quit working - don't offer any other information.
If you must fix the E/G yourself - On the generator there's a cover on the back; take the cover off so that the back of the windings are exposed. You should see 4 to 6 diodes mounted to the rotor and stator...those diodes are most likely burned out because of temperature failure, due to overload. You have to take them out to isolate them...they should read .6 Ohms one way; reverse the leads and they slhould read about 1.2 Ohms. If there shorted you'll read 0 Ohms and open infinety.
Anyway, replace those diodes and you should re-establish your field winding voltage which develops you A/C output.

Somewhere in the wiring you have a "hot" wire touching a ground wire... that is what is shorting out and tripping the breaker...
Finding the problem may mean that you will have to take everything aprt and recheck everything then with wn OHM meter...
You could check it first with the OHM meter also...
That may tell you if the problem is in the cord or the box...(generator interlock)
Double check also that you have the right wires to the correct prongs of the plug and/or outlet....
Is the plug for your generator a three prong or a four prong plug???
You may have to jumper the nuetral and the ground if you have a four prong plug and a three wire cord...
Bottm line is that you are shorting out and that is causing the problem...
