The stock fox 2g alt wiring is a rig job of 2 10 gauge wires from the pigtail that is spliced into a single 10 gauge wire that runs to the solenoid. My 88 almost burned because of that wire splice. I was lucky enough that it melted enough that the splice fell apart and the burning stopped. That happened while the car was parked
The wire splice thing, although a rig job, is not as bad as the rig job where the pigtail attachs to the alt though, those two 10 gauge wires are attached to the alternator through some 1/4 lugs that corrode. All it takes is for one of the two lugs to have a problem from a sloppy crimp job with those cheap crimp terminals or a little corrosion which then overloads the other one and boom, flame on! The whole stock setup is an accident waiting to happen and once the average joe starts crimping new wires on or replacing pigtails without using electrical cleaner or some type dielectric grease to prevent corrosion, it gets worse.
