A Professional Weldor's V-8 Chevrolet Truck equipped with a ZENA mobile welding system

The pictures on this page detail key aspects of a ZENA welder installation into a 3/4 ton Chevrolet welding service truck with a V-8 engine.

The ZENA system sees extensive daily use and is the owner's only mobile welder.

In this case, the truck had a serpentine drive belt system, necessitating the use of a ZENA Add-A-Pulley™ retrofittable secondary pulley assembly. This accessory eliminates the need to make any changes to the stock drive belt system.


Add-A-Pulley™ attached to existing alternator

Mechanical installation of the Welding Power Generator was accomplished by making a welded support bracket which attached to the vehicle's existing alternator bracketing, and which was combined with a ZENA A300 universal mounting bracket (drilled and tapped for two 5/16” bolts) which was attached to the support bracket with two 5/16” bolts.
