Re: BATT or IGNITION feed into the 'Line' connection on a CS alternator?
I also did this same swap and though my alternator is working, my "batt" or idiot light does not work! I wired the "L" wire from the CS alternator to the wire that goes to the idiot light. My understanding was that the "Batt" or idiot light should come on when you move the key to the start position.. My light does not EVER come on..
I have verified that the alternator is charging because as soon as the motor fires, the voltage jumps up to 13 on the voltmeter.. Before starting, with the key in the "run" position, the voltage is right on 12. I understand that I have it wired correctly, but I guess I thought my "batt" light, or idiot light, would still work with the CS. Am I wrong?-
