I installed the 6vdc positive ground alternator using the original pulley and fan which I removed from the generator.  In order to make this setup functional I had to extend the alternator shaft to accept the oddly shaped pulley and fan assembly.   There were no original components harmed or altered in any way by this modification and can easily be restored back to original.

In the meantime I will be able to enjoy my old car without worrying about charging issues.   I was also able to repair the original horn assembly and remove the secondary 12 volt battery and horn button that the previous owner installed to operate a modern horn and electric fuel pump.
