Glad to see you are back in Panama.
It sounds like a fuel flow issue. If you bypassed the fuel shutoff solenoid and it works, have you tried replacing it. Dumb question but worth asking. Is the fuel pump good? I believe it is an electric pump – easy to check. Is the stop solenoid working correctly?

Our generator has been sleeping for a year and a half; we
can start the generator but as soon as we release the start switch it does not
stay running; we bypassed fuel shut off solenoid and generator will
mechanically run; we have changed the oil, replaced exhaust temp switch,
coolant temp switch, confirmed all K relays work except K4. Wondering if
we should flash the field and what method we should use. Thank you, Kevin
