I have a dg6000, when its running it puts out 124/241 volts. When I give it a load, the engine won't ramp up to handle the current draw. I don't know what to look for. I recently installed a new stator, due to the old one shorting out.
It looks like the auto throttle is controlled by a vacuum system. I would look there first. My guess is that the vacuum hose, item #580 on page D of the parts diagram, is either disconnected or has been damaged. If the vacuum hose is OK you will need to work your way through the vacuum assembly and inspect each part. The parts I would suspect are the check valve, item #564, and the diaphragm, part #560.
The vacuum hose is part #285804-16, the check valve is part #285804-01 and the diaphragm is part #285803-97. All of these parts are available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.
I hope this helps with your repair!
