 I know this is off topic and not directly related to Aircraft electric but you guys are so good I thought I would ask.   Can anyone give me a learning document/book on how generator heads work and how to troubleshoot them when they stop producing power?   When I take a generator head apart all the windings look good I’m just not sure how to troubleshoot the electrics to determine what parts need replaced.  I have gone through a half dozen small generators and  would like to give my kids an education in what to do with it besides take the motor out and put it in a go cart.

I assume that you are talking about a home generator.
If your generator has brushes, they would be the most likely problem along with slip rings or commutator.
Other than that, you could check continuity of windings. Google search "how to repair a home generator".
