88 ford 150 6cy 2 plug alternator wire coming off from 8 oclock conection where should it go have chrging problem any advise woul be helpful thanks

if there are two wires that plug into the alternater and a larger cable that bolts to it then there is a seperat voltage regulator located on the firewall. trace the wires back to it to find it. take it off and take it to your prefered aoutoparts store ( i prefer advance auto parts, very helpfull). have them test it. if it is bad just replace it and you should be good. if the alternator only has one wire and the one cable the regulator is inside the alternator. take off the whole alternater and have it tested. same deal. if you have anymore questions let me know. :)

The altenator has no power

Are all the cables clean & connected firmly? If so boast the vehicle & while running & booster disconnected put an amp. meter on the neg & pos of battery. If amp. meter reads over 13.2 or higher alternater O.K. if lower Change alternater.

Alternater went out and I put a rebuilt one on. the hot wire gets hot and so does the alternater after you run the car a few seonds. also the battery light stays on.

I believe the rebuilt one is not good too. If the battery light stays on it means that the system is not charging. Did you connect all the wires the same way

Alternater will not charge battery and alternater is good

Try re-doing all connections, check your alternator at a national parts store chain, and if the alternator passes, replace batt.

Sometimes alternater does not charge battery

Drive the car to the auto parts store and have them test the battery and alternator for proper charge.  You probably just bought a dud, even though they are new.  Doesn't happen much but does happen.
