Re: AAW Classic Update power wire
Ok, to get back on track here to the OP.
Dan, don't worry about having the alternator charging lead going to the starter terminal instead of the OE junction block. I had the same question, and Donny Bock at AAW explained why they chose to design it the way they did. I'd have to go dig out my notes for his exact reasoning, but I think it was that it would charge more efficiently and trigger the charging more efficiently, and that since the OE horn relay buss, voltage regulator, and the like were all eliminated in the Update, there was no reason to keep the OE junction block.
I did run my alternator lead up the engine harness from the starter a few inches, across the firewall on hooks under the heater box cover (same type of hook as the one on top for the heater fan lead), over the top of the inner fender (under the fender), and then out to the alternator with the wire for the "gen" light. I didn't want the wire along the oil pan rail with the battery cable, just because I didn't want a single wire popping up at the back of the alt, and then another single wire coming over from behind the battery for the gen light.
If you want the AAW explanation direct from the source, call the 800 number and use the dial by name with "Bock". Donny has forgotten more than most of us know, and even though he is now head of R&D (or some fancy title like that) he is still willing to answer questions.
