If you have an scr pack, that has 6 pins, there are two for ac, two for gates, and two for the excitation field.
The two gate wires come off your adc controller.

SOURCE: need wiring diagram for kohler 12.5 engine and

A FREE download of the entire Kohler Service Manual for your engine is available as of 1-29-2010 on the net in the form of a pdf. I don't know how long it will remain available but as of today you can still download it allowing you to reference the area of your concern using the address; This pdf contains the entire Service manual for your engine. However, it is 147 pages long and if you don’t start with at least a half full cartridge it may drain your black ink cartridge. I downloaded this Service Manual for my Kohler 12.5 engine to help me fix a charging problem and it was a bargain because the download was FREE except for the ink and 147 pages of paper.

Model 17 RES spec#GM51561-GAI serial #2234881 - purchased 12-10-08 - the engine loads down and turns off before finished charging - and it does it with breaker on or off and it is intermittent - does not...

If the unit 'loads down" with the breaker off as you indicated, it isn't the load, (unless someone has wired it on the wrong side of the breaker to the home) and is been overloaded. Assuming that is NOT the case you need to check the stator wires to the breaker for ground shorts, especially when the unit warms up. I had a case once where a unit had a bad stator, it would run fine then as it was put under a mild load it would just bog down like overloaded, the stator was heating up and causing a ground fault. Have the unit load bank tested also. I am interested to know what you found?

Kohler 12K RES where are links for the installation /setup of the controller? thanks

The 12RESL has no user setup. That's part of lower cost on the DC 2200 controller versus an ADC 2100 or ADC-RES controller that came with the 12 / 17 / 18 RES models. Here is a link for the ADC 2100 Operation / Installtion manual though.

My Kohler Model 17RES threw an Overspeed Shutdown code. I have been unable to reset the system. It makes a short "chattering" sound around the circuit board area when I try to manually switch the...

The chattering sound is the stepper motor trying to cycle. Check to make sure there is no interference, move the throttle linkage by hand back and forth fully as sometimes the 17, 18, and 20 butterfly valve sticks on the carburetor gasket. If this happens, remove the gasket and use a file to put a good bevel (45 degree angle) in it to stop it from hitting. Thats all it takes.

17 KW Kohler will start and idle but will not step up to proper RPM to run the generator. Is it common for NO gas (Propane) pressure to pass through the regulator when the engine is trying to start. Or...

i think the propane regulator is controlled by engine vacuum pressure in a lot of gensets. when was the last time your valve clearances were checked? this is just a thought because if the valves are too tight it may not make the vacuum needed to open the regulator. not sure but its easy to check.
