2G Ford alternator, strange socket

Hey guys,

Please help me with this strange (Ford ) problem:
I want to install this 2G in place of a 1G alternator, the problem is that the socket didn't come with the light gree/red wire in the expected "I" position, rather it came in the "S" position where a white/black wire should be, and the hole for the "I" connection is factory plugged.

This alternator was running in a E350 van, I pulled it myself, it's factory wired this way.

My question now is, how do I wire it? the van is gone and there's no way to go and follow the wires now.

I believe it didn't have an idiot light on the dash so the "I" connection is not necesary for the van, but how do I wire it on my Granada now?

I have some pics, please take a look.

yes thanks, but those are the diagramas I already have, my problem is my alternator does not have a wire in the "I" terminal, the one that should go to the switched when hot, instead has the green wire connected to the "S" terminal, where a white/black wire should jump to the other "S" terminal.

is this some sort of "one wire" factory connection?
