It was probably positve ground from the factory but it will work ok either way. The generator can be polorized pos or neg ground.
Is the battey charging the way you have it now?

I would leave it pos ground. You can polarize the generator and it should be fine.

almost all older massey harris machinery was sold with pos ground. you can polarize the gen to work either way, however the starter may not work at all with a neg gnd hookup. learned this the hard way !
