Doc here,

Simple,

One Red 10 Gauge wire from the Alternator output to a Proper Fuse link or MAXI Fuse, to the BATTERY side of the Ford Solenoid.

Then Run a 10 Gauge black wire from the Alternator Ground lug or mount bolt to the CENTRAL grounding point at or near the starter.

Are you sure you want to run a 1 wire? A three wire has more advantages than a 1 wire , such as capability for Charge lamp, Remote sensing, and does not require an RPM bump to turn the regulator on.

A one wire is OK for street rodding, simple to install, where wire count is preferable for a "Clean Engine Bay" look, and where Daily Driving is not an issue,and minimum accessory's are involved .. If a lamp is not being used, and remote sensing is not going to be a factor.

Doc
