It's here! Vacation weekend but hope to hook it up soon! Looks like it is clocked at 9 thankfully. No wiring with it so I'll have to hit the auto parts store and see if I can find the proper plug... Is a ground needed on the lower bigger bolt head on the alternator?

Alternator should be closer to 14 Volts when running. A little less at idle is typical with the older alternators, especially when loaded, but it should be above battery voltage.
Battery should stabalize around 12.8 V with no load, fully recharged, engine off.

A ground won't hurt, but the bolt there is for a little support bracket on the later models.

Help me out on terminal #1... It's just confusing to me... Is it made to attach to the IGN terminal on the solenoid? When exactly does it need power and does the IGN terminal provide it? Thanks

terminal #2 is the voltage sensing. i hooked mine up to the old fuel bowl solenoid lead,which was no longer used,on my '77 j20,which is a switched power lead.


the terminals are usually marked via casting #'s on most alternator cases.

DONE!

I thought I'd put a follow up on this post, I hate it when you read a post and don't get to see the result so here we go!


Alternator was not a direct fit, the bolt post was shorter than the other one so I needed to make a "spacer", not a problem, had some washers around and added them until I got the perfect measurement and fits perfect. Wiring went well and straight forward thanks to Ristow's tolerance of me. Runs smooth and I am going to change a couple of things in the wiring to make it cleaner but it's operational.
