1973 Ford LTD V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic
I just replaced the alternator. My ALT light had been flickering, and then stayed on. With new Alt it still stays on!
Wondering about correct wiring of the ALT. There are 3 wires: one large to BATT, but there are two smaller ones: 1 is orange w/ blu stripe, other white with unk stripe color. Which wire is connected to the Stator pole and which one goes to FLD post?
Right now I have white to Stator and orange to FLD. Large to the BATT terminal. Is this correct. Can you possibily provide a diagram showing the 3 wires and which terminal they connect too!
I made a diagram off the old ALT but that didn't seem to work when I wired the new ALT !
I also am suspecting that the voltage regulator may be a culprit!
