If you don't have an answer you need with by 6:00 I'll look when I get home. the black w/red stripe should be split (it's a ground) one going to the block and the other goes into a male/male/female 3 prong(?) connector.

White/Black=Stat terminal (alternator) goes to S post on voltage regulator

White=Field terminal (alternator) goes to F post on voltage regulator

Black/Red=Ground Terminal (alternator) goes to ground bolt on block and "T"ed to ground bolt on voltage regulator

Black/Yellow=Other terminal (don't think it's labeled, and it's just for the radio suppressor).

Make sure you're looking at '65 wiring diagrams. The '66 diagrams are entirely different, as they use entirely different harnesses.

Do you have the 5 gauge dash or the falcon dash? Here's the setup:
Falcon dash:
Black/yellow goes to BAT
White/black stripe goes to STA
White goes to FLD
Red/Black goes to Ground.

GT Dash:
White goes to FLD
Black/Yellow goes to BAT
Red/Black goes to Ground.
