If you are trying to repair or restoring one here is a electrical wiring diagram I prepared for a a friend who is restoring one. His is a very early unit and only differs per Note 1 from the later unit shown above.

I have a separate line-voltage test lamp on the test bench but rarely use it. Scares me just thinking about it. :-) It's easy to get a jolt if you're not careful with the leads. Probably why it was dropped from later models. My growler has a low-voltage test lamp powered by a small transformer.

The line voltage test lamp was part of both early and later versions.
Only the shorting tab that allowed you to use?? the light for working on the generator was deleted in the later version. Apparently they quickly learned the 25 Watt bulb was useless for a work light?
