This past weekend I had a short that toasted a lot of the wiring in my 65 between the starter solenoid, voltage regulator and alternator. Rather than just doing a quick fix I took out all of the wiring and did all of it again. Most of the connections were crimped and soldered. Wire to wire connections were soldered only. The harness going to the voltage regulator was toast. I had to even get rid of that little rubber connector going into the voltage regulator because the wires were burned all the way into it.

This is how I wired it. I was hoping someone could review it and see if it is okay. Car starts up fine so I know that part is okay.

Power wire going to main engine harness (black/red stripe) connected to the battery side of the starter solenoid.

Green wire with red stripe from main engine harness connected to the "I" terminal of the Voltage regulator.

"F" field wire from alternator connected to "F" terminal on voltage regulator.

"S" stator wire connected to "S" terminal of voltage regulator.

Battery Lug connected to the "A" terminal of the voltage regulator with another wire (spliced/soldered into the connector) going from the "A" terminal of the voltage regulator back to the to the battery side of the starter solenoid.

8 Gauge jumper wire going from the Output/Battery Lug of the alternator to the battery side of the starter solenoid.

I was left with one wire that I have no idea where it goes or what it is for. It is connected to a little cylindrical metal object screwed into the sheet metal next to the radiator on the driver's side. It is where the voltage regulator was before I moved it. It is an orginal part and the wire from it is black about 14/16 gauge.

Also, is there any resistor type wiring that needs to be in this area that I might have overlooked?

So guys what do you think, did I do it correctly? Thanks.

Looks right to me. Sounds like the mystery piece is a noise suppression capacitor and I haven't a clue where it was tied to.

Franklin,

You are right I figured it out. It is the radio supression condenser. I think it goes to the "S" terminal of the voltage regulator. I don't need it though so I'll just leave it off. Thanks

Do I need the wire from the "A" terminal to go to both the Output lug of the Alternator and to the Battery side of the solenoid? Does it make a difference? I figured I'd get everything perfect before I button it down permanently.
