I'm not sure what you mean by "hook them up together"? Do you mean connect them in a way to get 4K out of them? If I were a betting man, I'd wager no. If you connected both to a power strip for example, I don't see how you could control the frequency & voltage as you added load. Which one would pick up the load? And it would be a bear to sycronize the RPMs, you'd be constantly adjusting the carbs I would think.

An interesting question though. Why would you want to do this?

I mean to hook them together to have twice the power, so I can run my air conditioner.

Honda actually makes a kit to hook up 2 generators in parallel. See this LINK. It's on sale now at Camping World, but it's a little pricey at the $180 President's Club sale price. I think what Dagwood_73 is looking for are do-it-yourself plans.
