Hmmm, I would install a Chev Alternator on any Lincoln or Miller engine driven welder. Parts are easy to get, and these units are simple to retrieve from a wrecker (under $20US), as well as, they have an internal regulator. They bolt on the same way as the generator or Lincoln alternator. Grooved pulley type (the serpintine are the same, just swap out the pulley with an impact gun.)The "Bat" hookup and "1" of the "2" stake on terminals (doesn't matter which one) goes to the battery terminal on the starter.The other "stake on" (top 2 terminals on the top of the alternator) has to go to something that turns on and off, like a oil pressure sensor switch. An automotive store carries these, it's just a simple switch that is N/off till 10 psi of oil pressure is reached, where it goes to an "on" position. Both Miller Lincoln uses them for that little green light on the panel.The Switch is to stop the the 12Vdc drain at the alternator thereby not draining your battery over night.Any questions don't hesitate to Contact ventureline@shaw.ca
