Ok dust just settled. If you have a Power Tech generator. Call power tech at 800 760 0027. Go to tech extension 3. Speak with Jeff. He is the contact point for parts and issues.

For my model generator. The voltage regulator is plug and play.

Tomorrow the new regulator will be here in Longview Texas. I will take pictures. My generator is only 120. That's why its plug and play. We shall see. I plan on letting tech read  the issue others have had as these tech only work on generators....

Yours is not plug and play. You will have to cut a wire and remove all the wires from the terminal strip. Jeff will walk you through it. My build is 5563 and that is what I had to do to not burn it up.

The description of your regulator is not the troublesome one on my generator. Which explains why yours could be plug and play.
