alternator issue
« on: December 11, 2012, 10:23:18 PM »
Have the 2.8 in my Bobcat now but have a 302 going in. I just noticed that there is no wire going to the battery from the alternator. Is that correct?

That wire can also connect to the solenoid on the firewall or on the starter if that's where the solenoid is located.
