Make sure Voltage Regulator is mounted tightly to the Metal frame of the generator. It may be overheating and shutting down

SOURCE: low voltage generator output
Nothing about the bumpy dirt road would have done this but the 10 years of storage might mean that you've got dirty slip rings. Plugging a drill into the 10Kw generator isn't going to tell one much about the power coming out of it, you need a stove :-)
After a camshaft replacement I'd want to use the "Hz" function of the DVM to make sure I was getting 60 Hz.

As far as I can tell on the wiring diagram for this generator there is no voltage regulator unless it's incorporated with the auto throttle unit.
To lower the voltage you need to lower the speed of the generator engine. To do this there should be a screw on top of the engine under the tank when your facing the recoil. This screw presses on a arm that controls your governor. Turning it in (righty tighty) will increase rpms, turning it out will lower them. You should see the voltage change on the voltmeter.

If the generator hasn't been used for awhile the rotor may have lost it's magnetism. All you need is to re-excite it. There are several websites that explain how to do this. It's a good place to start.

SOURCE: no output from my generator
Check the capacitor in the generator head. Will onpen or short cause loss of excitation voltage. Just checked my GENERAC ( no output) and sure enough the cap is shorted.
