Post One Wire Alt. on a Flat Head ford

I have a 24-T track roadster running a 255 F/H using a high torque starter with a GM type solenoid, a Mallory dual point dist. and I want to use a GM style one wire Alt. Does anyone have a diagram I can use for this? Do I use a ballast resistor? What is the Dist./coil wiring look like?

The one wire alternator I put on my '62 Impala just ran right back to the battery. That made it plain and simple.

Al here with in beautiful downtown Galt, CA

This is not to difficult but since I don't know just what starter you have I can't be too specific on all of the wiring you mention. I also can't remember exactly what ohm resister you need but I can give you a number to call to get that info.

If you would like to e-mail me your phone number and a good time to call I will get in touch with you to discuss it with you.

post it here Aldo Nova, my parts store guy said the 10 ohm resistor goes to the exciter in a 2 wire system, obviously a 1 wire doesn't have that. i didn't know the 1 wire took a resistor. if i'm wrong i'll have fried another one before i can read you answer tho. <img src="graemlins/evil.gif" border="0" alt="[evil]" />
