Weems & Plath AutoMAC alternator controller? Need help.

My engine is coming back in this week and the boat has a W & P AutoMAC installed but it was not hooked up when I pulled the motor but I would like to hook it up.

As far as I know it is a device that overrides the internal voltage regulator in the alternator and allows me to control alternaotr output. For example if the batteries are 75% charged the alternator may only put out 10-15 amps to "top them off" but with the auto mac I can crank it up to full output (35 amps in this case) and top em off faster.

I have no idea how to hook it up or to operate it. I looked at W & P's website and they don't have any info there. i emailed them to ask them for a manual but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Anybody ever used one of these? If so do you have a manual and/or can you tell me how to hook it up and operate it?

Thanks in advance!!
