Are we talking about a CS-130 style alternator here? They have a modern style weatherpak plug on them with 6 pins or so. One pin is bigger than the rest. Check the techreference (series 1) I believe. There is a good article there that many of us have used in the past. The big red wire ties to the B+ lug on the back. Then, one of the other wires (brown maybe
) is fed from the instrument panel bulb. There are warnings about this light in the archives and the article. You can't tie the bulb light wire direct to B+.
