Re: cs alternator need help
thanks for the help. i basically did what you said and that is left the main red wire hook to the battery, 12 volt all the time, hooked up the heavy wire from the 4 wire harness out of the alternator to the back of the alternator stud, same place where the main feed to the battery hooks up. then i hooked up the L wire to the switched ignition wire which also has the generator light on the feed and it seems to work perfect. I was nervous not using the 3rd wire that i had hooked up to the si alternator on the other post, but it seems to be working fine. when i turn on the headlights without the engine running the alternator guage goes down and when you start the car it goes up. do you think i did it correctly?
the engine is a chevrolet performance parts 383/425 hp engine.
