I originally bought that kit to eliminate the external regulator from them with their kit. however, my wifes uncle is in the alternator business and sent me a 3G plus a adapter to make it internal regulated. I can post pics up as well later. I just want to make sure how everything goes. Right now I have the main battery cable connected to the solenoid on the fender. 6 wires are currently going to the stock alternator, two are grounds, one goes to the electronic choke, one is a black with yellow stripe and other is solid white or faded yellow.
I bought the kit that has the dummy external regulator from pa so my wiring should be what your looking for. I'll be home in about 20.

Ok couldn't really get any good pics with everything in the way. My power cable goes from the alt through the inline fuse then to positive side of the battery. The rest of the wires are hooked up as you described above.
I installed the Pa dummy box. My amp gauge currently reads in the middle but I know for a fact that my battery is draining as my alternator is crap. I have been charging the battery after I get home from work. So not really sure what's going on with my gauge as it doesn't move now. Before I put the pa kit in my amp gauge needle was just bouncing all over. So now with the new alternator I went with the adapter to make it internally regulated. so I don't need the pa dummy kit. Do you know which wire runs to the amp gauge?
It's fixed. Disconnected all the wires except the black with yellow stripe. I'm leaving the dummy external on just for giggles as don't want to go through the wiring harnes to take all the wires out, plus if I ever get rid of it easy to bring back stock. Now onto other fixes.
Thanks for the help folks
ok, so i apparently i just thought i fixed it. So after i installed the alternator all was good, checked my hand held voltmeter and was getting 14volts, thought all was good. However the next day battery was low, so I charged it started car, did the ol disconnect the positive to see if alternator was charging and sure nough it died. Did the same test moments ago and now it stayed running. Is there some kinda ground as I know these cars are sensitive in that area but I wouldn't think it'd bother charging?
It turned out the guy that swapped the motor put the choke to the batt lead on the alternator. Since it's been cold it has been on constantly. It was draining the battery. Never noticed nor had the skill to recognize it til now. It didn't affect it during the summer or warmer months as the choke didn't need to be activated. So all is good now. now onto i believe the cluster regulator, as it seems my dash lights flicker every now and then. Thank you everyone for your support
this is one of the cars i inherited when my dad died. i pulled it out and washed it like 13 years ago, so i figured it wouldn't need too much work. it needed a decent amount of small things, so i've spent the past 2 weeks messing with it
here's what i've done so far:
new air filter
I’ll post pictures of it later today. This was my grandfathers car that has sat for the past 2.5 years until a few weeks ago when my dad finally got it.
Plans right now are new drivetrain, fix the rust issues, shelby hood scoop, fender flares, new suspension/brakes, new wheels, finish the...
I just bought a 69 mustang convertible with a 351w cobra in it. So what is the difference between a 351 Windsor and a 351w cobra? The woman I bought it from knew little about the car, it was her late husbands and I am no motor head. Needing information
Hi everyone! some of you may know me from the 96-04 area since I have a 1999 GT (click here) and a 1997 Cobra(click here). I recently picked up a 1965 Mustang that has been stored in a garage since May of 1993! Probably wondering how I picked it up so, the town i live it had and old service...
I'm working on a customer's 1968 mustang with a 302 roller engine in it. It's got Ford racing heads, a single plane intake, new Holley 600 carburetor, new Mallory distributor and protector, new resistor, new coil, new ngk plugs gapped to .042". I can get it running and it runs alright but...
