Is it the old style alt. that uses an external reg? If it is the newer "one wire" style all you need to do is run a heavy wire from the B+ term. to the battery, and hook the gen. light wire to the other small terminal. _________________ <div>I am a VW enthusiast who drives a Dodge.</div><br />

D+ = Dynamo Positive (Red)
DF = Dynamo Field (Green)
B+ = Battery Positive (Fat Red)
61 = Terminal 61. (Blue)
Basically, all you do is get rid of the voltage regulator, and the D+ and DF wires, and hook the B+ wire to the + on the alternator (threaded post), and the terminal 61 wire to the terminal 61 on the alternator (spade connector). If the alternator you are installing isn't internally regulated, you follow the same procedure, and then attach the remaining three wires to their respective terminals on the alternator's external regulator.
The method of using the green field wire for the 61 wire and the D+ wire for the B+ works fine, but I just prefer to make things look factory, even if they aren't. _________________ <span class="Apple-style-span"><div><IMG SRC="http://www.vvwc.ca/albums/album42/rabbitsig.jpg"></div></span>
