wiring

The alternator is connected directly to the battery by way of one of the red wires on the solenoid. The purple wire on the solenoid is the one that activates the solenoid/starter. The smallest of the three red should be the distributor. It is the same red wire on the base of the clolumn where they key rod comes down. You can peel back the Wire covering tube and follow the wires. There is one red going from the alt to the battery for charging another for the field winding. Three red wires go into the fuse box. One of them is actually coming out to the distributor. The other two are 1) switched power for radio/heater/etc. 2) The other is unswitched for headlighys/dome light/etc.
