my battery is not charging when engine runs (12V) , so i thought the alternator was the problem. because the battery is OK since i can charge it with a portable unit, and it is 1 year old. i made the alternator checked by a shop the guy told me it works OK. So i put it again in the car but i still only get 12V so i think my wiring must be messed? i know i removed useless wires some months ago maybe then i made smth wrong. Anyway i found in my chilton manual a wiring diagram, but my alternator set up doesn't correspond since i have only 2 wires connnected to my alternator.
DO you know the right connection of these 2 wires where they must go etc etc to the voltage regulator and battery ? i have a brown and a red. is it as simple as brown for ground and red for power?

thank you
