IS THE WIRING FOR THIS 10DN ALTERNATOR CORRECT? WHICK LEADS DO I TEST W/MULTIMETER TO CHECK?

How do I wire up a 10DN alternator w/external regulator. It seems the external regulator has two wires reserved for the battery(+) & the other reserved for the alternator. Do the pics look correct as far as wiring goes?

If you can wait until tommorrow I can look it up in my wiring diagram and give you the correct way to do it. It kind of looks right though. He large lead should be hot all the time though if memory serves me right. Reply either way and i'lll take care of it for ya.

Nice. Here's the diaghram I was workin' off of. I'll try to fit that fusible link before the 'hot'(yellow) gets to the battery.

. Thank you for the help
