Re: help wiring starter and alternator (bagpipegoatee)

That sounds lie a Motorola alternator which was supplied on American rabbits. It had two 3/8" quick disconnects and one 1/4" quick disconnect. The 1/4" goes to a (usually) blue wire that runs to the dashboard. It is the source of excitation voltage for the alternaotr and also the alternator idiot light.
The two 3/8" connectors run directly to the battery positive terminal. There should also be a ground strap or wire from the alternator to the engine block.
