I finally got the generator running properly.  Two of the wires coming from the brushes are switched.  I hooked it up 'wrong' according to the diagram, but it is correct for the way the wires are currently connected.  Maybe, at some point, I'll find the wires that are reversed and correct them.  Probably, I'll just re-label them in the connection box and keep things simple.  For now, I just wrote myself a note as to how things are connected and stuck it in the connection box; I've got too many other things to work on!

It's funny how something that started out as a cranking / starting issue turned out to be an issue with the AC wiring.  Thanks to all those that posted suggestions.  I never cease to be amazed at how helpful this board is.

 I to had similair problems starting my 7.5 onan.  I was changing the battery cablles and some how got the cables reversed.  I could't believe that I could do that but I did.  The battery turned the geneator motor over but it turned very slow and would not start.  When I finaly figured out thr problem and reversed the cables it started right up.  Hope this helps.
