Kohler Generator Switch Function?

I'm temporarily GIC (Guy in Charge) of our Football Booster Club 87 Ford/Carpenter tailgating bus. It has a Kohler 7000 23 HP generator Model k582EP that cranks but won't start. Wondering what the silver toggle and push button switch are for to the right in the attached picture? No one can recall seeing the generator run so should have fun getting back on line.

Re: Kohler Generator Switch Function?

More info. Turns out we're not getting spark so will have to drop the generator and check coil, etc. While troubleshooting, I noted that the silver toggle apparently turns battery power on/off to something because you can hear a clicking noise similar to gas grill lighter when it's flipped. Still no idea with the push button is for? Figured I'd try to trace wiring once the generator is lowered to work on other issues. Too bad they didn't mount this beast on a pull out tray.
