ford taurus alternator on my 1991 4.3L

my little tbi style alt is dying and making annoying high pitch contant squeak noise when starting it up often now,
and the guage is reading around 12 volts now when running, after it always has been around 14 in the past.
so its on its way out apparently, and this style of alt is problematic due to design anyways, so im opting to go away from it,



ive got a 130 amp 2000 ford taurus motorcraft alternator(YF1U-FA) i am putting onto my 1991 s-10 4.3L. the two wires on the ford alt are orange with blue stripe, and the other is green with red stripe.
the orange one is larger than the green one

it should be pretty safe to assume that that the small green one is for dash guage or light,

and the bigger orange one is like the older years style "field" or whatever you want to call it., according to the wiring diagram the orange wire goes to hot source same as the big yellow charging post wire.


correct?

all i gotta do to put it on the 4.3 is grind down the width of the pivot bolt ear, and make a flat piece of steel with hole in the end to extend the mounting point of the upper ear bolt



thanks for anything
