#1 & #2 Posts on Alternator

71' Chevelle My car has been converted from the old alternator/voltage regulator system to a 1 wire alternator without the external voltage regulator. I know the brown wire going back to the dash is connected to or jumped with the blue wire coming from the #1 post on the alternator, if I am correct this goes to the Gen light in the car. The problem I am having is the new alternator (Driveworks P7127SEAV) has both the #1 and #2 posts positive even with the key off so what I get is a Gen light that stays on constantly. Has anybody else run into this problem or does anybody know of a remedy?

Re: #1 & #2 Posts on Alternator

It appears even though there are 2 separate posts, #'s 1 & 2, they are one piece. I wonder if this is a mistake by the remanufacturer or if this is one purpose. Apparently I need a different alternator.
