Sorry another alternator conversion ?

In my search for directions on the conversion to a internally regulated three wire it looks like a have 2 versions (diagrams). 1. One showing brown should be linked with blue and red linked with white into the external voltage regulator with blue/brown going to terminal 1 and white/red going to terminal 2 on the alternator and 2. One showing that you get rid of the external regulator all together jumping blue into brown, capping off white and red, running blue/brown into terminal 1 and adding a new 14 gauge wire from the Batt terminal to terminal 2. Am I reading these correct? Any difference?

Re: Sorry another alternator conversion ?

Both ways work.
The first way the regulator built into the alternator senses system voltage at the main splice, where chevy intended. The second way voltage is sensed at the alternator output. Don't think it makes much difference, both hookups will work.

Re: Sorry another alternator conversion ?

mine has the Red to the Batt terminal
'F' ...feed to make the fields live.. (think it is also maked '2' ??) is connected to the Batt above..make up a short wire.
White to the other terminal...This makes the ign light work

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

This way is the best way as voltage is sensed at the 4 way splice, just like the external system. This one you don't use the external regulator either.

This one, voltage is sensed at the BAT stud on the alt, just like a one wire alt. Either one will work, 1 is best though especially if you have electrical add ons.
