That's actually a PD 4045, which is an excellent choice. However you can buy them new wih factory warrantee for $145.00 at Vintage Technologies, see post #26 above.

Me thinks you mean the 4045, Tom. The 9245 is stand alone with no distribution panel. I know because I have 9245 bolted to what's left of my Newmark.

I think I'll be ordering the 4045 from Vintage Tech. Thanks to all for the great feedback.

If you get the 4045, check the 12 volt circuits. On mine a couple of the numbers on the wires didn't match up with the fuse number. Probably a rare occurrence, but it saved me some confusion by using an ohm meter to check them. I only used 6 of the 12 circuits. Study the wiring diagram that comes with the converter, it can be a little confusing if you're not used to doing wiring. The 12 volt section has to be connected to a breaker as I recall, and if you use a battery disconnect switch like I did there is a jumper that has to be removed.

Depending how that factory wired the 110 black wire. When I first set it up, the battery kept discharging. It seems that that the black 110 wire on the front of the converter was wired to the exteme lower right to the AC Hot to the converter. I just reconnected this wire at this point to a 110 sub breaker and all is well now.

Moving the black AC power wire for the converter isn't mentioned in the instructions and, as discovered, it won't work until it is connected to a breaker.

Accoring to PD, that small terminal buss on the right side of the case was put in for a Canadian requirement. After moving the converter power wire, I used the strip for a very useful ground bus.
