Question about 1965 Ford Mustang
I have an early mustang with a generator and a generator indicator light. I recently replaced the generator with an alternator that looks like the generator and it is a single wire system. I had to disconnect the wire from the voltage regulator so that the Gen light would go out. My question is, how can I get the Gen light to work with my alternator. I have no way of telling if the alternator is charging the battery or not. I have a 260 V8 installed and it is original with the generator.
What to do first is remove the regulator then un tape loom of regulator wires some of the wire go to the old generator remove the ones linked
now there should be one wire that goes back to the engine loom that was going to the reg or gen
now with someone helping get them in the car turn on the ignition on the gen light should be on yeah
now u place wire on + side of battery and ask if light go out if it does then u got it
THE ONLY PROBLEM IS NEED MORE DETAILS ON WHAT BRAND ALTERNATOR FOR WHERE TO PUT IT
RATE MY HELP MATE TELL ME HOW U GOING WITH IT
