ford generator wiring

hey everyone,
I'm sorry ahead of time if this question is a stupid one, but, i'm in the process of rewiring my 64 fairlane right now. I got the ezwire wiring kit, and in the instructions, for the charging system, it shows a picture of the alternator with three terminals on the back, they're labeled s, bat, and f. now, i have a generator, and on the back there seems to be one terminal, and two that look like bolts but none are labeled, and there are also two terminals on the side of the generator, labeled I and C. how would i go about wiring the generator? I used the search and looked around online and couldn't find anything. also, the car had a fire before so there are no wires connected already to trace back and go off of. Thanks a bunch!

~Frank

thanks kultulz! the wire that's labeled, to horns etc, would you run your lights through that too? on the wiring kit there's a solo\enoid power wire, do i still connect that even though you connect the wire from the B on the regulator to the solenoid power too? I'm assuming that's how everything else in the car get's power, so it'd need to be hooked up on that terminal on the solenoid too right? sorry i'm such a wiring dummy!

alright so this morning after i looked at the wiring diagram i went into napa, and asked them for the right voltage regulator. I have the voltage regulator shown in the bottom picture, with the IASF, and i ordered it from a fairlane catalog specifically for my year with a generator. and napa said that they had the same voltage regulator shown for 63 to 64 generators too (with the IASF). Now, do i keep trying to find the regulator shown in the top picture? or do i just connect the field on the generator to the field on the regulator, ground to ground, and so on, and just leave the I blank, or just use that for an indicator light? Or are the two regulators completely different internally? thanks!

You are no dummy! You have more gonads than I did at nineteen. I was terrified of electrical...

-FORD WIRING DIAGRAMS-

Go to the above URL and find the schematic for your FAIRLANE. Print out if possible. I have never used (or seen) the wiring kit you are using but I assume they take several shortcuts. Determine where accessory power is derived from the schmematic and do yours as such (some circuits need to be keyed and fused).

I do not understand how both the ALT and GEN regulator could be marked the same. The GEN regulator was electro-mechanical (as were first ALT regulators).

Let me try to find a source of the correct regulator.

It has been awhile since I came a cross a GEN system...

On the FORD wiring diagram, refer to the 1964 schematic. 1965 shows ALT installation.

You stated you have a 1964. I'll be alright...

Talk to these people -AMK PRODUCTS- about a GEN regulator.

Remember, the harness kit you are using is not a direct service replacement but has to have made modifications to make it work properly. Go slow and ask about anything you don't understand.

wow thanks a bunch kultulz for all that info, i printed out those wiring schematics, those will help a ton wiring the dash and switches and everything. And, i decided to just go with an alternator for the charging system. I had an alternator already that i was planning on switching to this winter but i wanted to get the car running as quick as i could so i was going to run a generator, turns out it only took me a few hours to make up a bracket to hold on the alternator . But the alternator is a new one for the old mustangs so that other wiring diagram you gave me should work great for that. i'll let you know how it turns out once i get it all wired in, thanks again!
