The regulator is essentally bypassed. The hard part with a one-wire alternator is that you need to wire in the generator indicator
light and a resistor. If you do not have this, the indicator light won't work and worse the alternator will not charge until you first hit about 1100 rpm. Auto Restorer magazine ran an article on this a couple of years back. I assume the Powergen alternators come with instructions for the conversion.
