I see they sell an alternator with just one wire. Does anyone know how to wire a stock alternator like the ones they sell? Thanks Greg

Run a wire from your batt to the post terminal on your alternator. From the two wire plug, jump one wire to the hot post on the alternator(always will be hot) and the other wire to your ign switch. Thats it.

OR, run the BAT line to your battery, and the "feild" to the BAT terminal. It wont start charging until you rev it up some, but it will charge. If you let the car sit for a few days like this though, its best to unplug the "feild" terminal so it doesnt drain the battery. Just plug it back in before you go racing.
