Now to get the
generator running, Ian has kindly made me a 24volt regulating
control box that I have attached to the genny itself,
basically it controls the voltage to the field coil,
thus maintaining the required voltage.
from the generator connects to a 500 amp solenoid
that the power can be isolated during running, and then
from that to an ammeter shunt so that the current can
be monitored, the voltage and ammeter gauges on the control
panel now once again have a use.
