You are fortunate to have a 12 lead alternator head.

Find the wiring diagram and change the configuration to 120/240. You should be fine.

Dont be afraid to connect the LO to ground at the generator if you want to. Some have the connection already done inside, some dont.

Connect to your house with the assistance of an electrician that is familiar with generators not just someone that wires houses.

Use a proper transfer switch or Double Throw Switch rated for your service entrance.

This is not a handyman or DIY project. You really could burn your house down.

Best Wishes!!

Do you need three phase power for your shop?

I would setup a three phase panel with the 120/240-208 and feed a seperate panel with the single phase 120/120 winding.

This way you have the best of both worlds.

Even better if you could wire that 12 lead head to give you 120/208 wye you could keep it all together
