The basic power wiring is very simple
- 1/0 line from Battery positive to the large lug on the starter.
- 1/0 line from battery negative to the alternator bracket (or other engine ground)

- Use the large lug on the start to connect power to the rest of the vehicle. Stock setup usually has a fusible link on the wire, but you could also use a large capacity fuse.

- There are two ways to connect the alternator charge wire.
1. Run the alternator charge wire down from the BATT post on the alternator to the large lug on the starter and put a fusible link on the starter end.
2. Run the charge wire directly over from the battery positive to the alternator.

If its a 10si or 12si alternator you also need to wire the two wire plug.
- Terminal 1 (or R) is connected to switched power from the ignition. However, there should be a small dash light bulb connected between the wire and the ignition, or you should have a 35-350 ohm resistor in the circuit.
- Terminal 2 (or F) can be connected to the BATT charge post with a short jumper. There are two wire connectors at the parts store that have this jumper built in.
