Alright it should read WIRING,not wring.

Ok I'm almost done with the battery to trunk deal.
I have the the one conversion on the back of my alt.But on the solenoid there are two black wires that come off the battery side.One gose to the alt and one to the Voltage reg,or some were.
The one from the alt I'm replacing,but should I leave the other black wire hooked to the battery side?

I did check the volts from the trunk mount battery.At the battery I had 12.5 volts with car off,and at soleniod I had 12.49.

No I got the mini voltage reg that bolts to the back of my alt,and makes it a one wire.

https://mustangsandmore.com/ubb/Forum12/HTML/004248.html

If I disconect the wires to my old voltage reg,how dose the ign switch get power?

Tiy will still have to run a hot wire from the alternator to the solenoid ROn.

Man this really makes me mad that I dont get it.
I'm running the batt wire to the solenoid the batt wire from the alt to the kill switch in the trunk.

So I have to run another wire from the alt to the solenoid too?

And just leave the old volt reg and all other wires hooked up to the batt of the solenoid like it is?

I'll give up after this if I dont get it this time.

Let see if this makes any sense how did you guys hook up your one wire alt.
You hook up one wire to the batt side of the kill switch.
But what did you guys do with the old voltage reg wires and the wires from the batt side of the starter solenoid.

The simple solution is.....

1) the alternator wire to the battery side of the switch.
2) route a heavy cable back to the solenoid for the 12v to other things and the starter current/voltage and attach to the battery side of the solenoid.
3) leave the wires that were on the battery side of the solenoid attached except the big wire that previous went to the alternator.
4) leave the old regulator on the radiator support.
5) find a wiring diagram so you can remove the regulator and old wiring later?

Thanks Larry thats what I'll do for now.I know that seems easy,but I was making more out of it then there was.

I was just hoping some one knew how to remove the volt reg and bypass the wires.

I would think you could take all of the wiring out and the regulator also. There might be on one on the I terminal of the regulator that would have to route back over to the new regulator to turn off the ALT lamp in the dash.

Per their directions, and yes, I realize it is for a generator instead of alternator....

"If you want to use the in-dash warning light, it must be connected to the Orange wire on the new regulator."

And they go on to say more in step 10....

And looking at this picture, the bottom half, you are bascially removing everything on the right side and replacing it with the module you purchased.

Thanks Larry some times I just need another look at things.
I'll hook it up the way it is.Once I know it works then I'll work on removing the rest.
