OK Jeep feller,
I've run into a snag
I have found 2 different V.R.S, one has 3 wires the other 4, My manuals show 4.
Next snag, The connectors on both show that they piggy-back each other, and my manuals do not show that.
I will give you locations on the Alternator, Color, Gauge, and PURPOSE of each. Without the Jeep's Harness' End Connector I am sorta stuck.I'm sure If I had a lot more time, I could maybe figger out the positions.A lot of times, I find someone with a similar rig, ask if I could follow some wires and make notes.
Here's what I got thus far, Remember, this is 4 wires lying flat (no piggy-backing)As if this were a flat connector:
REG. Wires come out of left side (assuming that I am viewing this from the exposed top side)
D-6 comes from TL of REG.---TO---Left bottom terminal of ALT. (Above the one that goes to the solenoid).D-6 is Grey, 18 Gauge
On the same terminal on the ALT.A wire travels to the Cluster (instrument)It appears to be Grey and 18 gauge also.
The next is D-44, it is the 2nd down (middle-top)on the REG---TO---ALT."The Square", Left (horizontal) Terminal (manual labels it "F" [manual labels both ends of wire REG end and ALT end---"Field"])It is Green with a White Tracer, 18 Gauge
The Next is D-43, 3rd down (middle bottom) on REG ---TO---ALT."The Square", Right side, vertical terminal, labeled "G" [manual labels the wire: REG end and ALT end---"Ground"]Wire is BLACK, 16 Gauge
The Final wire is D-40 it is the Bottom left wire on the REG--TO--"I" Terminal on the SOLENOID, this wire is Yellow, 16 Gauge
"I" terminal "ONLY" has FULL BATT VOLTAGE while CRANKING, then it dies, It also provides momentary full BATT voltage to the coil while cranking, when the Key is released, the coil reverts back to reduced (resistance wire) voltage supplied by KEY ON. I AM ASSUMING THEY USE "I" TO EXCITE THE FIELD. JUST A GUESS!
Thats it so far. Questions for you now!
I have not dealt with a "PAINFUL WIRE HARNESS"
Do they have connectors on the wires, or must you install them too?
I believe the orange is the one I did not have, I really do not know if your colors correspond with the ones in my manuals.
Here's another Idea, now that you have a few definitions to where these go, AUTOZONE and ADVANCE AUTO test these puppies.
Their little "HOOK-UP" Book may define which is Field and which is Ground ETC. On the REG. Worth a try?
How may I confuse you more? I will hang with you!
Just to be able to search for this post in the future, I will give it the ole NELSOMATIC seal! I sometimes do that so I do not have to re-write stuff, I can just link someone to it.
