Better plan on replacing every piece of rubber on it if it's been sitting
since 1984!  I would change all the fluids and bring up the oil pressure
before running it too.

No mystery to the 12v conversion, just get a "Group 26" 12 volt battery
(make sure it doesn't have the plastic tabs on the sides for modern
clamps or it will get hung up) and drop it in.
