    Not an expert but what kind if info you looking for? Also if you have a S/N of the outfit it will let someone get many more details, like when it was built and any options on it. That is assuming you are talking about one particular generator but if just looking of general information I just Google. Here's what I found in just a few seconds:

    For information on both of them go to https://www.servicemanualpro.com/
    and enter the Serial Numbers and it should show you what manuals are available for them.

    Just a note the part of those numbers you posted that are the actual Serial number are as follows"
    6GW0173 and S2H00580

    Also I note that the 6GW0173 is showing as a Generator Set
    While the S2H00580 is showing as a Marine Auxiliary Unit
