The recommended method to properly mount and connect the generator to the engine is to directly mount the generator to the engine. While it may be possible to get the desired horse power by connecting and synchronizing two smaller engines it is not recommended and would void the warranty if this setup caused failure to the generator.

The NorthStar Generator Head has a capacitor built in for voltage regulation. For technical information such as the tolerance of the generator head, may we suggest contacting the manufacturer, NorthStar, at 800-270-0810.

answer 2
These heads are single phase, brushless and use capacitor regulation to control voltage output. Due to this design the voltage tolerance is directly related to the speed of the engine so the tighter the speed control the tighter the voltage tolerance output will be.

Northstar Expert
This generator head has a built-in capacitor for voltage regulation. An external regulator is not required. The generator must be run at the correct speed in order to produce the proper electrical voltage and frequency. Failure to do so could result in damage to equipment powered by the generator and possible injury to the individual. Follow these steps to ensure proper voltage output before connecting loads to the generator: 1) Allow running generator to warm up for five minutes. Do not connect any loads. 2) Use portable voltage meter to check output voltage at the generator’s outlets/receptacles. 3) Measured voltage should be within the following ranges: a. 108-132 volts at 120V receptacle(s). b. 216-264 volts at 240V receptacle(s).

If the output voltage is NOT within the specified range: 1) Adjust the engine speed if possible. 2) If that doesn’t work, re-verify that: a) Your engine’s rated horsepower meets the minimum requirement, 3) If you are still not able to achieve acceptable output voltage, there is a problem with the engine or the generator. Refer to your engine’s owner’s manual for troubleshooting. If it appears that the generator itself is the problem, call NorthStar Product Support @ 1-800-270-0810 for assistance.

answer 2
SAE J609B is the specification for the taper on the end of the engine's crankshaft. Most direct drive generator engines use this specification but if in doubt, check the specs for your motor to verify for use with this generator head.
