Re: Another alternator question...
Al, you're correct. A brown/white wire, 11 ohms, I think, is in parallel with the GEN bulb to do exactly like you suggest, keep the alt working if bulb burns out.
If an LED is subbed for the filament bulb, LED does not have enough resistance, nor the current handling ability to keep the alt working.
A 10 ohm, 35 watt resistor will work in place of the brn/wht wire.
