I am assuming you are now using a 1976 style GM alt.
The most common and popular model.
You need one 10 gauge wire from the battery to the alternator output.
This can be run directly from the battery +.
Run a short 10 gauge wire from alt output to large wire at regulator plug on alt.
Run small wire on alt reg plug to Bat light wire.
A new alt regulator plug pigtail can be bought at any parts store and is recommended.
The existing regulator should have the connections marked.
One of those wires will be the bat light wire if needed.
If you have a amp meter or voltmeter in the vehicle.....use your existing large output wire (usually red) to hook up to the new alt output connection.

Whenever working on a strange vehicle, I visit my local library's reference section. There I can find all types of manuals for different vehicles. I was able to find and photocopy a wiring diagram for a 1976 Cadillac Seville.

Hi, this is a 2 wire Delco alternator. The wire from the terminal on the back goes to the battery or starter, and the other (excite) wire goes to the battery light in the dash. It also goes to the PCM--not sure which pin, sorry.
