Not just another Univolt thread

Attached are some photos of my univolt and what makes it tick, or hum. The fuse panel is a little different configuration than other posts I have seen. It has a penciled in label saying 1969.

The panel positions from top to bottom on the left are:
Red 8 gauge 40 amp to car battery
Circuit 4 20 amp
Radio 20 amp (not used)
Power on 1 amp

On the right from top to bottom
Trailer battery 40 amp ( I have a 40 amp breaker replacing the glass fuse)
Circuit 1
Circuit 2
Circuit 3

On the bottom on the left
Trailer Battery Ground
ammeter

On the bottom on the right
Ground Load
ammeter

Here's a couple of questions about hooking up my Intellipower 9245:
1. Should I run my Positive / Negative wires from the Intellipower
a. from Intellipower to battery terminals and back to the back of the fuse panel and skip the 40 amp line to the battery in the top right position on the fuse panel, or
b. from intellipower to connections on the back of the fuse panel as originally wired with the Univolt
(I think b is the way to go)

2. Any reason I can't mount the Intellipower to the back of the old Univolt cabinet as in the thumbnail? I think I may use the front half of the old Univolt case to contain the old Univolt fuse panel.

3. Am I going to loose my power on light and ammeter? To keep them would I have to do something with the circuit board or is the circuit board now trash?
