I am assuming that you have removed the end bell with field winding and the only obstacle is the rotor on the crank of the engine.  I am also assuming that you were able to remove the long bolt thru rotor into crank. Now you will need to apply penetrating oil to the shaft of the engine to loosen the rust on the taper. It may take several applications. Place a piece of hardwood against metal  to protect the rotor and  firmly rap with hammer on both sides. You may need to use pry bar against engine and rotor as you hammer hardwood.  Repeat as necessary, some rotors will be very stuck due to rust. Good luck.

How do I remove the horizontal shaft

the motor you are working on has a split block and you have to take the motor off and remove the bolts holding the two halves of the block apart. this motor doesn't have a separate removable head. it is cast as two pieces and in my opinion makes more work for some repairs. hope this helps

Need a replacement on-off switch for a DeVilbiss GB5000-2 generator

My switch broke as well. Instead of trying to find one, I removed it, and mounted a heavy duty toggle switch on the front of the shroud, just below the original location. Connect the original wire to one side of the switch, and a wire connected to a good ground to the other side. Btw, the off position on the toggle switch is run, and the on is now off. This repair has served me for years.

Can I change a 10hp generator motor with an automatic throttle to a manual throttle?

Yes, you will be able to control the throttle. Look for a lever that pulls on the governor spring. On some generators, the governor spring attaches to an arm with adjustment screw and locknut or metal tab that bends into position. All that you need do is to pull on the governor spring to increase rpm. The governor spring pulls on the governor arm that is attached to the fly weight governor inside the engine. The fly weight is turned by the cam gear in most cases and the force that it produces is constantly trying to close the throttle. The governor spring provides the counter force to open the throttle. Without the governor, the engine can over rev. Good luck with your project.

Put new battery on 14 hp v-twin Briggs, started and ran for a while. Shut motor off then came back and tried to start, acts like the battery is dead. Where is the generator/altenator located on these?

The generator is under the flywheel with or part of the ignition coil.

Check all the battery wiring and grounds. A bad or weak connection will act the same way.

I have an old 2500 watt 5 hp Briggs powered AC generator. It starts ok but runs rough, it seems to be running very rich. The carb is a non-float type with a diaphragm pump and only one adjustment screw,...

The five hp briggs with diaphragm pump suffered from warpage of the fuel pump cover and /or carb body due to heat from the muffler. Try this first. Remove the diaphragm cover and lightly sand it with fine sandpaper (300 grit). Place the sandpaper on a flat surface (I use a thick piece of glass) and sand in a circular motion for just a couple of turns and check to see of it was in fact warped. If it is in good shape it could be the body of the carb. I am assuming that the valves are seating ok. Good Luck with your repair.
