alternator wiring
« on: April 08, 2008 - 05:53:19 PM »
Two field connections.  Two wires.  One blue.  One green.  Does it matter which goes to which?  If so, could someone tell me which is which?  The manual just shows F, F and B and doesn't differentiate between the two.  Wish I could input more to this board than questions but I do appreciate the help.

I have to say no difference either way, but going from my harness, I could only reach the far one with one of my wires, so I couldn't switch them if I wanted to. Keep in mind, my harness has been altered, so your results may vary.  :lol:  Sorry to joke around, but the field is the field. No positive or negative side, so connect either wire to whatever terminal.

I don't think it matters, and I am blessed with a bad memory, but I believe I remember reading somewhere that 1 wire was a high speed brush and the other a lower speed brush. When I looked into the stater, 1 wire would ride on a side field and the other on a vertical field. Which would make the brush windings faster than the other. I am positive it works both ways, but I thought green on top and blue on bottom.
