I just started chasing this rabbit....
I found some info from a poster on another forum
"I work for a Generac industrial dealer and need help that Generac is unable to give... Back in the mid-late '90's they used a 1.6L Fiat engine on 10-25kW NG/LP generators. Recently I have found out that they no longer supply the distributor cap or rotor button for this engine. I have been able to source the cap but have had no luck on the rotor. It is supposed to be a Fiat P/N 71371301. I'm hoping someone has run across this before and could provide some assistance. Thanks!"
"These engines were not released in the US for automobile applications, but they were in Canada and the UK. I have been buying my parts on eBay from a user focus212 in the UK. Prices are much less expensive than Generac even with the shipping. The Part numbers I have are Intermotor 34800 Condenser, 48212 Rotor, 45460 Cap, 22271 Points (Which he sells under part # XR240) not sure of mfg name. I've been using BPR5ES plugs Part # 7734 found locally. Hope this helps those that are still using these generators. I'm currently searching for an oil fill cap for this engine. I found a mfg in the UK for the governor throttle linkage for those having issues with that."
