Soundguy, he wants to keep his mag so there will be no 12V source like there would be if the unit was battery ignition equipped. normally a diode between the 12V coil post and the alt would be the ticket I agree and have done many.
The D10AC regulator that the other poster referred to in the 10SI Delco is the real ticket, I have an 830 Diesel with one on and it charges 30A at just above Idle and is charging as soon as the engine starts. This regulator requires the removal of the diode trio and wiring added internal to the alt to work, but work it does.

i didn't miss the fact he wants to stay magneto ignition. there are plenty of ways to skin this cat without an extra switch.. etc.

so.. is the machine hand crank? or push start?

it has no button to engage an electric starter solenoid.. even a manual one?

got headlamps?

lotsa options I can think of on a diesel or mag ignition unit.

i'm not a fan of 1 wire units. generally cost more and may take igher rpms to excite.. and some have high quiescent leakage when not running.
