This one appears to be an early Generac portable.

Model #:09797-3
Series: 5500exl
Serial #: 5348277

Engine ID: EHE-00962-1
Displacement: 360.00 cc
Serial #: 5348277

It seems like a well built machine. Nice robust gen head and an 11HP OHVI motor. It fires right up but there are a couple of oil leaks that have to be fixed. It almost looks like the motor could have been built by Briggs & Stratton under contract to Generac.

Does anyone have any leads on shop manuals -or- a source for repair parts on this model ?

Looks like i lucked out. Tried the GN-320 model number on the pull start as a search term and it pulled up everything needed. Service & repair manual along with a source of repair parts.

It's a good day. :smile:

Glad to hear it! Sorry for the delay, it was a long weekend, haha! I can get you the parts you need if you let me know which parts.
