Default TroyBilt 7 kw generator AVR Replacement Question

Don't know if this should be two questions or one, as it is two parts. The total project consists of attempting to use a 7kw, 10kw surge generator as the power side for a welding generator setup.

The Welder is an old Craftsman 180 amp single phase 220 volt welder with two taps on the output side. A low and high plugin style.

Will this generator power the welder at 180 amps output for whatever the duty cycle is and if not, what sort of max amp rating and duty cycle could it be used at.

Here is the current problem that must first be solved.

The AVR is flakey. I have purchased this board to mount inside a box I'll build my outlets and breakers into.

Unfortunately I had to guess if this would work with this generator in regards to voltage and flux field generation at the armature. I do not know how many amps and at what voltage the field should be established at to generate 7kw power.

Will 29 amps @ 220 or so volts be sufficient to power the craftsman welder?

Is there any benefit to rectifying the output of the welder to obtain DC?
