Hi. I want to provide more details regarding wiring my alternator. My 69 has an amp meter, 390 motor, and 55 amp FoMoCo alternator. I'm stumped on what wires go where from the voltage regulator. Thanks Bill
I fooled with mine so much last spring that I had the connections memorized. However, I have lost soem of that recollection. What exactly are you trying to find out? The connections, terminal to terminal, of the regulator and alternator?

The next is a partial response from Mulletwagon to my alternator questions on the old VMF, they may be of use to you:
1. On the alternator -
The wire from "FLD" should go the the "F" terminal of the VR. The "BAT" wire from the alternator should go to the the heavy positive post on the starter solenoid. The "GND" wire should go to one of the sheetmetal mounting screws on the VR. The "STA" should not be used (again, assuming there is an in-dash ammeter).
2. On the VR -
The "I" terminal should not be used. A wire that is hot (12VDC) when the ignition key is on should go to the "S" terminal. A wire that is hot (12 VDC) all the time (key on and key off) should go to the "A" termial.

My 1964 1/2 289 mustang starts and idles ok. It backs out of the driveway ok. Accelerating slowing the car is very jerky. Stomp on the gas pedal and it takes off quickly and smoothly. The car has a fresh tune...
My new to me 1965 convertible has a power steering leak, I think this is a fairly common problem. The control valve is leaking. My question is should I remove it and install a rebuild kit, or just replace it. It seems to be a bit pricy at over $300, a good kit is around $70. Just want to...
My 66 Mustang GT is running high on the temp gauge and today blew down for 30 seconds after I shut it off, making a fine sound during the event. Car ran fine, otherwise. It’s the original 289 but the radiator has been replaced. I’m assuming a bad water pump. Not sure that has ever been...
1971 Mach1 351C with FMX. Grabber yellow with Mach1 flat black treatment and stripes. Great car! I bought the transmission used for $250 and it works/shifts fine when I drive car normally, however if I jump on it or punch it, the tranny slips and engine revs up for about a second before shifting...
I just got the new T5 tranny in and I’m moving on to hooking up the z-bar linkage. I have everything loosely in for measurements but I’m stuck with the lower rod that engages the clutch fork. How do I move the clutch fork back far enough to let me install the rod? It can’t be done with your bare...
