Alternator wiring diagram.
Attach the small terminal that fitted to the dynamo F terminal to the
alternator IND terminal using the multi-plug.
At the voltage regulator, disconnect the F and WL wires and join them together.
The full wiring diagram, with cable sizes, is shown.
Attach the slotted adjuster strap to the alternator and to its mounting
point on the engine. Ensure that the alternator pivots freely.
You may find that you have to bend the slotted strap to make it fit. If that
does not work you will need to buy the correct strap for the alternator. Fit a
new generator drive belt and tension it correctly.
The alternator needs to be connected to the ignition warning light and to
either the input terminal on the starter solenoid or the live battery terminal.
Using 97/.012 (97/.30) cable, measure how much you need and cut it to
Attach a suitable connector to each end of the cable, and connect it to one
of the large terminals in the rear of the alternator marked + (it doesn’t
matter which one).
Run the cable to your chosen live point following the wiring loom. Use cable
ties or insulating tape to secure the cable. Connect the free end of the cable
to the starter solenoid or battery terminal.
Now find the small wire that was connected to the dynamo F terminal Connect
it to the terminal on the rear of the alternator marked IND. Next move to the
voltage regulator unit, and find the terminal marked F or DF and pull off the
wire from it.
Do the same with the wire on the WL terminal. Join the two wires together,
and insulate them. You can leave all the other wires attached to the voltage
regulator – it acts as a useful junction box.
Fit the drive belt and tension it and reconnect the battery. Turn on the
ignition, and check that the ignition warning light comes on. Start the car and
ensure the light goes out – you may need to blip the throttle for a second to
