Question Alternator Questions

Hey everyone, Just found this forum.. Looks pretty nice.

I've got a question right off the bat..

Does anyone know what is needed to run a alternator?

Or if theres a special way to wire it.

I'm thinking it wouldn't be smart just to put dirrect power to it.

Info is appreciated.

It's a 1985 5.0.

Atm it's got the stock wires coming out of it.. but going no where since the wiring harness is gone...

So I just need a way to hook it up to a switch so it's on/off when I need it to be..

Amps don't matter, I need just the normall amount.

Re: Alternator Questions

See, I was thinking you can just hook it up to straight 12v power, but it has a regulator.. so I just need to know how to hook each up to work properly.

Re: Alternator Questions

probably your best bet would be to get one of the one wire aftermarket solutions. just hook it to the positive post on your battery and throw a big fuse in there and cruise

Yeah, but I don't have the cash to do that...

So I need to figure how to hook this one up... There's obviously a way if it worked before...

Just need to know what goes were.
