anyone got a quickie wiring diagram to convert a generator car over to alternator using a ford alternator with an external voltage regulator? i wanna avoid a gm 1 wire if possible, thats my all else fails at this point
It should be pretty straight forward, but just to clarify you're swapping the generator for an externally regulated alternator yes? The regulator your using, does it have 3 or 4 terminals? [Typically, it'll either be denoted as "A-F-B" (3 TERMINAL) or "I-A+-S-F" (4 TERMINAL)] Also, will you be utilizing a junction block?
if its a stock Ford Motorcraft G 1 alternator , it should have 4 connectors,
you can use all the existing stock wires , but you have to get a later model regulator (set up for alternator) just swap the wires where they belong and your all set.
May have to fab a bracket or spacers and stuff as the alternator is smaller then the old generator.
is it a FE motor ? the G 1 alternator squares up nicely in the lower mount position.
