The green wire on my alternator seems to be cut. Where does it go? My problem is that when I run the car it seems to be draing the battery because it won't start back up after running at idle. I' thing it's that green wire. Thanx

I have a 68, the only green wire near the altenator, is the temp. sending wire. This wire is taped together with the altenator wires. There are three wires that connect to a Gen 1 altenator. It sounds like maybe the altenator belt is loose and causing your discharge problems

The two wires that go to the alternator are dark blue and white. Plus the big red one to the output terminal. There should be a plug that goes in the back of the alternator. If it's gone, someone may have tried to put on a "one-wire" alternator.
