Default Wiring Diagram for Delco-Light, probably 8A3

My Dad has a Delco-Light plant, which he thinks he has identified as a 8A3. The rest of the information he has given me is it is a 32 volt lighting plant, with an engine number of 291289. It is a copper rim cylinder plant. He has restored most of it, but needs a wiring diagram. Can anyone help me find out how to get him this information? Thank you for any help.

There is a gentleman that frequents this board named Don Wiley - But everybody knows him as Delco Don.
Once he spots your post, he should be able to provide you with all the information you need.
Just be patient & Good luck!

I too have a 32 volt, 850 watt delco light plant. I am also to the point that a wiring diagram or manual would be a great help in getting my machine finished.

Take care,
