The pictures on this page detail key aspects of a ZENA welder installation into a 3/4 ton Chevrolet truck with a V-8 engine. This was an older (pre-serpentine belt) model which is used on a farm for equipment repair. The installation technique shown works on almost all Chevy trucks which use old-style, separate V-belts for each powered engine accessory.
Power Generator (WPG) installation was accomplished by mounting a Model A300 Universal
Mounting Bracket to the "top" of the existing alternator bracket. Universal
Bracket mounting was accomplished by drilling and taping holes for two (2) 5/16"
bolts which are used to mount the Universal Bracket to the existing alternator bracket
as showm. Two overlarge (to allow for WPG adjustment) mating holes were drilled through
the existing bracket.
A piece of 1/4"x1-1/4" bar stock (not shown) is used to lock the WPG into a fixed position which clears obstructions and yet allows sufficient V-belt "wrap" around the WPG and the existing alternator. The existing alternator's belt tensioning system works to properly tension both units.
this installation, the ZENA system was installed secondary to the truck's existing
alternator and electrical system.
