Generator is often cheap and easy to repair, commonly only needs 
brushes.  However, if the generator is melted inside due to a failed 
control box, that would be a good time to consider the alternator 
conversion.  In recent years replacement control boxes have been 
notoriously unreliable.  When a regulator relay fails, the bad $40 
control box takes out a good $100 generaor along with it.
