Confusion about Alternator wiring diagram
Hello everyone I'm new here, or as one would say "A Newbie"
I have read alot of threads and searched the "Knowledge Base" and could not find what I was looking for. I have a modified 1957 chevy and have owned it for 32 years. But since I did my frame off there are several loose ends I need to fix. I custom wired the car from my own experience and everything is fine except one thing, the charging circuit. I have a Delco12Si 94 amp alternator and it gets real hot to the touch after ideling for a few minutes, with nothing on except the car running. When I wired it up I put a resistor in the circuit from the ignition switch to the alternator. I have seen some diagrams with and without a resistor...which way do I go...with or without a resistor...Thanks George
The battery is in the trunk if that info is needed with a 1/0 wire running to the starter. (welders cable)
Great forum hope I can help out sometimes
