Per the gasket question? Is it a Kohler engine,
or somebody else's engine, and a Kohler generator
I've seen old Kohler Gen. sets with a Hercules
engine.

They are a little itty bitty purpose-built HEAVY Kohler four cylinder watercooled engine.


LOTS of weight/castiron to put out 6 HP or so!

I have one in operating condition and two parts units, one of which is a 32 VDC setup.

I have a Koler unit that has the generator that is 65KW. Runs pretty good or did the last time I needed it back in 2007 when we had the ice storm. If it was me I would fill the cylinders with AFT after making sure that the radiator has not fill the cylinders with coolant due to a bad head gasket. You can also blow out the cylinders with air before filling them to make sure that is not water in them from condensation because if there is any water at all the ATF will not work well. Then after a few days try a wrench on the crank pulley or some other such thing. If it has a starter you might try that with short fast taps
