    I think you have to go from the build date to the regulations in force for generators at that time. I don't have the charts anymore but I think genesis lagged behind truck and equipment engines by a couple of years. The tags and build records for some reason won't tell you. What I'm finding lately on engine tags is "this engine conforms to US EPA regulations for year XXXX and California regulations for XXXX".
    Good Luck

    Thanks John. I have a pretty good handle on the regs and impact on generator mfr dates. I usually get hung up on mfr date if it's not stated, but buried in the serial number.

    No info on 6HN1003. The serial number doesn't tally with the test spec you quoted.

    This is for SBJ339.

    6HN01003 with a build date of 2000 is at highest EPA TIER II. It could even be TIER I.
