Hi all. We are looking to swap out the original style alternator in my
father-in-law's '68 Firebird for a newer GM unit. The original alternator is
externally regulated, and we are experiencing voltage regulator problems, and
the alternator is really weak also. We would like to do away with the
externally mounted regulator, and swap in a GM "one wire" alternator. But we
need to know what changes need to be made to the wiring to do this swap.
Specifically. What do we do with all the wires that are now connected to the
voltage regulator?? Can we just connect the wires together?? if so, which ones
do we connect to which ones???? Does anyone have a part number of an
internally regulated alternator that will bolt right up to the original
bracketry on the 400cid V8??? Any and all help is greatly appreciated,
especially a wiring diagram!! -----Jon H.
