This would require setting the cable just right, but could be done easy enough.

I think that you will find that the engine has an internal charging system to keep the battery charged. It does not make sense to me that they would omit that on models used for generators. Inspect the engine and compare it to a parts manual to see if you can identify a voltage regulator on it for charging. There are manuals for Yanmar clone engines on this site that should help you with your engine.
It should be easy enough to install the glow plug that I don't see a downside to trying it. The biggest challenge may be that it is a metric thread and will require a metric drill and tap.
Good luck with your project and keep us posted.

Here's an example: http://www.ebay.com/...f813fc0&vxp=mtr
Maybe you can find one at an old car scrapyard for cheap to try.

I converted a generator GAS engine for use in a golf cart a while back. Aside from removing the throttle stop screws, I was able to use it as is. I made an adapter for the taper crank instead of cutting the shaft. That probobly doesn't help you much but I couldn't just make my wise crack comment and leave......
