It's a 8kW portable, the engine speed controls the frequency. It is a simple throttle adjustment to set it back to 60.

How did this problem occur in the first place? If your genset isn't auto-regulating the throttle to compensate for the correct voltage and frequency properly then (to me) it has serious problems.  So many of these emergency gensets will only monitor & correct the output speed of the engine to operate at 1800 RPM (usually through a mechanical governor) and assume that the generator is working just fine which should give the operator a nice 60hz wave at around 110 to 130 volts. Rarely are they configured to also monitor the quality of the power output and make corrections to engine speed to ensure power output is within spec. So what did you did you do correct the problem, manually adjust the throttle lower to get 60hz and now you only have 105 volts? If so, then there is an issue with the generator component itself that needs to be addressed.
