    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.

    oh, I just realized "63falcon"
    never mind the FE ... but check this out
