Alternator and Regulator Wiring
#1
I've thought about making up color-coded wiring diagrams focused on the alternator and voltage regulator for some time. The question came up again the other day on how and what the different wires were connected to.

So, I decided to do it, one diagram for cars without factory ammeters, one for cars with factory ammeters, and a bonus of a 3G wiring diagram.

If anybody spots any errors, please let me know, so I can correct it.

It's somewhat mis-leading to have the red/green wire coming from the starter solenoid saying it goes to the coil. It does, but indirectly via the engine gauge feed harness connector. Some may think they need a direct wire from the starter solenoid to the coil.

At least you got the 3 and 4 wire voltage regulator versions correct! NPD has corrected their online listings after I contacted them.

Let me check your shorts!

Thanks, Randy. Good point. I'll add to that, hopefully without getting too long winded to try and clarify it.
