Question Wiring a 1-wire alternator after swapping out a generator????

Ok I got my alternator mounted this weekend and need somebody who has the experience of hooking up a 1-wire alternator. There is a red bolt on the back which is what they may call the (1-wire) but there is a plug coming out of the bottom and i bought a clip to go into that and it has 2 wires coming off of it. Im not sure how to go about hooking all these wires up and which ones i really need because I had a generator on the car and it had a wire for "field" and a wire for "battery". I dont know if i need to ignore those wires and just hook up the red postive bolt to the positive on my solenoid. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks,Donald

I think most of the 64 1/2's and possibly some early 65's used a generator, but everything else had an alternator.

you dont have to use the plug . hook a wire up to the alt (where the bolt is) and run it back to the hot side of the battery or the left side of the selinoid. (cant spell it) thats how i did mie and it works great
