alternator wiring

521 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Axnjxn
I bought a new alternator and harness, none of the colors on the alternator seem to match up. The larger loop which is I believe red on the harness is black on the alternator (I think, I'm at work right now and going by memory). Anyway is there a way to tell which wire goes where, as the colors don't seem to relate.

Did you get the correct harness? The '65 GT harness I know for sure is different.

If you have a multimeter, using the resistance scale, make sure that the FLD lead on the alternator goes to the "F" terminal on the regulator. The STA lead on the alt goes to the "S" terminal on the regulator. And the BATT lead should go to the (+) side of the solenoid and to the "A+" terminal on the regulator.
