Ok, I understand that the BLACK/YELLOW wire goes to the BAT connection on the alternator, the WHITE wie goes to the FLD connection on the alternator, the BLACK/RED wire goes to the GRD on the alternator wire, but where does the BLACK/RED wire with the large eyelet connect? I suspect the ground on the engine? If so (ground on the engine), does it connect to the bolt beside the eyelet in the picture below, or just a little lower on the block where the ground wire for the battery connects to the block?

On mine, the black/red wire was attached to the same place as the battery ground. The bolt just below the one in your picture.

Mine does the same as ophthos said, But mine has a stud/bolt setup I think it also has the automatic transmission lines supported.

Old thread...got it.

What is the benefit of the battery ground and alternator ground being located at the same spot?

Electrically they are at the same potential.
Mechanically, it is less work to tighten one bolt and make two connections. Saved Ford a few pennies on a bolt. That is more than enough for old Henry.
