It could be either your start capacitor or the contactor-relay. Or you could try cleaning the contacts of the relay with an emery board to see if there is a change.

It will turn over once or twice and stops it has a red light on where the braker panel is

press the helpful button and follow me on Fixya for more helpful tips

The current models of automatic standby generators will have LED indicator lights on the side compartment of the generator. A green LED light will indicate that the unit is in AUTO mode and is ready to run, or is running properly during a utility outage. The yellow LED light will indicate that maintenance is needed. The red LED will indicate either that the unit is switched to OFF or that there is an alarm detected. If a yellow or red LED are present, you will need to check the generator's control panel, as it will describe the type of maintenance needed or the alarm present. This information can be found in the owner's manual as well. You can find a copy of the owner's manual online by searching the model or serial number of the unit here

Trying to find oil filter that can be found locally from car part supply store.

take the old filter along to the spares shop and see if they can match it up
I suspect that the same filter will fit both engines
if you want to get technical, use a verniers to measure the thread hole diameter, a thread gauge to get the thread pitch, and the outside diameter of the oil seal
by going to oil filters manufacturers on line and researching their catalogues you will find pages of filters with dimensions that will match you filter
I would rather just go and buy a genuine filter from a mower shop or kohler dealer as there may be a generic filter already listed.

Generac troubleshooting my generac 14kw generator engine runs why doesn*t it produce electricity

Assuming the generator circuit breaker is on, depending on the model it could be the voltage regulator or the slip ring brushes or both. If it's a portable it could be a capacitor problem.
