7. Splice the new stator wire with a scotch lock to the small wire on the big electrical plug.
8. Plug in the small electrical connector into the 3G alternator.
I did the 3G install here a few weeks ago, but I used some different instructions. The ones I used said to hook up the orange and black wires to the alternator, whereas these said not to. It started up the first time, but now it won't start at all. Now the fuel pump continually primes and won't shut off, and it doesn't seem to be getting any spark. Any ideas? Did this fry the computer?
Anyone have an actual picture of the 3G wiring with the 4ga wire? It's just a curiosity thing on my part, but the installer who put my alt in did not go the 4ga route. Ran it like this for a long time, but I want to wire it up the right way before I have a failure and/or fire. I just need to see the alternator istelf with the wiring. No diagrams, please. Thanks.
Cenok, I leave the OEM ground and run an additional 4 AWG ground cable. You cannot have too many engine grounds.
Like the wire you spice into where do you plug it in on the alt?
Yep, when you get the 3G, you will see the spot for the wire (it's not there on a 2G casing).unless the new alt's wiring is different I dont see where to plug it in.
Also am I understanding this right the 4g wire goes from the power side of the alt to the power side of the starter silinoid with a 125amp fuse inline?
It goes to the lonely male spade connector on the alternator housing.
Yep, when you get the 3G, you will see the spot for the wire (it's not there on a 2G casing).
Yep, the 4 gauge cable goes from the alternator's charge stud (this is different than on a 2G - you will see where it goes once you get the 3G alt), to a fuse, and then on to the battery lug of your solenoid.
