Not sure on a Generac, but my Onan needs pulled for an oil leak also. I helped my neighbor pull his last year and it's not tough if you have something to lower it with. Remove the muffler, disconnect the fuel line and be prepared to plug it, disconnect the 12v coming to the starter, and disconnect the outgoing electrical. Four bolts and it drops out the bottom, we used a motorcycle jack to lower it down and reinstall it.

I had a Generac 5500 gas generator for 5 years and it leaked a small amount of oil for 4 of them. Never could find a definite source, nor did I ever have to add much oil (less than a pint a year) but it was always oily all around it. I stopped worrying after awhile and just sprayed it with engine cleaner periodically to clean off the oily dirt.

Good info as I also need to pull my Generac 4K .. Oil leak and the fuel filter looks like its in the rear... I haven't looked that close yet, thought it would pull out the front instead of out the bottom...
