my 70's alt. system has been butchered. i do know the the system is not charging. when you remove the positive cable from the battery with the engine running, it dies. with a one wire setup, you install the alt. and run a wire from the lug to the positive terminal on the battery. is this correct? if so where do i find one of these alt., of course i would install a fusible link. also i want to install an amp gauge, would i run a wire from the gauge to the lug on the alt.?

Thank, eddie

thanks, for the reply. i installed a 1 wire today, i went to a local reman shop. he built one this morning to make 105 amp. i installed it with a 10 ga wire to battery with a fusible link. this will sufice for now. system worked great. drove it about a mile and already charged the battery enough to restart. engine seems to run better, it has a hei ignition.

thanks, eddie
