74 Escort alternator wiring

Recommended Posts

Evening all.

So, in its life its had a few "mods" to the wiring. Ive chopped a load out from under the dash and engine bay. Had spot lights fitted.

Theres 3 wires that come out of the back of the alternator but one of them has been cut.

Its the skinny one out of the 3. No idea where it goes. Ive cut back the loom tape about 12 inches and cant see what it connects to?

Ill take a look tomorrow to see what colour the wire is. Havnt looked at it for a few weeks and forgot the colour.
