Re: alternator hook up
Generally, the large red wire goes onto the BATT stud of alt.
If adapting a 10SI/12SI alt, #2 terminal, Sense, would go to a battery powered junction, usually the BAT spade on the fuse panel, would be a good place, or horn relay buss bar, for easiness. Number 1 terminal, Excite, should get an ign switched battery voltage of heavy gauge, say 14GA.
If the original external reg'r connector is still in tact, jumper the two middle terminals together and jumper the two outside terminals together, and switch the blue & white wires at the alt connector, ie, blue to #1, white to #2. Change the wire gauge of the red wire from 10GA to 8GA to the horn relay buss bar and the wire from the h/r buss bar to the battery junction block from 10GA to 8GA.
This set-up should get you started. Now if the engine does not stop when ign is turned off, change the ign supplied Excite voltage to ign controlled relay supplied voltage;
Kill the excite, alt off.
