I have external regulated alt. and converted the wiring.
I have a very thick long enough battery cable which can reach from battery to alt.
Is that good to have fat cable from battery to alternator and connect allso the wire which would go to alternator originally(alternator becomes like junction block)
Actualy this wire replacing the 10 gauge wire that goes from the loom at right side to the left side (battery).
Is it better this way or 10 gauge original wire is good enough
Thank you

The original external regulated alternators only produced 37 amps so the original 10 gauge wire will be fine.

the bigger the wire, the better. but don't use that terminal as a junction block. it is where the battery gets all it's juice from. either setup a dedicated junction block, use the horn relay like the factory did, or (the best way) get all power directly from the battery. the battery is what powers everything, and it acts as a signal buffer to even out the power surges and what not. the alternator is just there to keep the battery charged up.
