Question about 1983 Dodge Pickup
1984 Dodge D350 pickup, 360 motor with 100 amp alternator. When the motor is running one of the fusible links gets really hot. I have replaced the alternator and voltage regulator and nothing has changed. There are two small wires that connect to the back of the alternator. An orange or faded red wire and what looks like a pale green or yellow wire. When these two small wires are unplugged the link does not get hot. Do these wires connect to the voltage regulator? Will the battery not charge if these are left unplugged?
Removing the two smaller wires stops the exciter current to the alt which stops it charging.
Usually if a wire is getting hot its because:
A: Current overload..
B: Corrosion in wire restricting current.
C: Corroded terminal.
