Pulled the resistor, and all is well. (actually left the resistor, and made a jumper wire so that should the 12v coil burn out, and only a 6v is available, my dad wont be dead in the water.)
As for the pulley, I think Ill just do what i did on the 4000 i converted, and make the OE pulley from the generator fit. Last time had to turn a bushing to space it properly but worked fine - the Alt will turn a touch slower, but not like we need to make 30 amps at idle on these... hoping to do the same on this one. Then the pulley situation is fixed without costing more, and since I already had to buy another belt anyway just to get the darn thing done Im pretty sure its long enough - hehehe prolly find out that the OE belt will fit again. I guess I know where I wont be going for parts anymore - if they dont care about things in the kits being right, understandable instructions, accurate customer support, and replying to questions with accurate info, then they must not want my business. Sign of the times I guess... all about the profits nothing about pride and quality.
Thanks again for the info... guess well see how well things last over time.
