'65 Alternator Wiring

840 29
I have a yellow wire connected to the STA terminal on the back of the alternator.

Looks like the villainous PO set it up. I added the other wire that runs to the choke [on the SUM MV2008].

Going to a MC solid state voltage regulator causes the ALT light to flicker.

Any troublshooting help would be appreciated.

I notice you are missing the static suppression condenser. They are available in nice repro. That's a 65-only item. The new harness should have a plug for it.

Not the point. 66-up all had the internal cap. But not 65. His new wire will have the plug. Any radio-equipped 65 would have the cap. If he has a replacement alternator, sure, it'll be sure to have the internal cap, but it would cause no harm to have the external cap, too.
