switching from generator to altenator

I have a '86 ford 5.0L that I'm putting in a '63 fairlane wagon. The old 289 that was in there had the old generator on it. The new engine has an altenator with two wiring harnesses on the back. Is there a way to rewire that to the car using exiting wire or do I have to change the whole system. I checked the knowledge base but didn't find anything usefull.

Thanks in advance,
dragon wagon

Relying on 30 year old wires

I don't think I'd use 30 year old wires myself. Buy a new harness from somone like Haywire.com and ask them that same question. Bet they have an answer for you.
