Hi i am installing a older 7kw generac guardian generator with a 16 circuit 100amp ats. I have noticed that the generator does not have a 23 white transfer wire hookup but the ats does . I have hooked everything else up and the generator and ats works fine but the ats won't switch to generator power . My question is what can I do with the 23 transfer wire at the generator to get the ats to switch to generator power when the utility is lost...

All of Generac's Air Cooled series use a 23 wire to transfer... What is the serial number of the generator that you're connecting and do you have any pictures of the install?

They are all labeled in the image. It literally says 23 on it. Right next to 194.
