Is this how alternators get wired from the factory. Just wondering cuz my lights flicker and the other engine I have has the alternator wires ran differently. Plus it looked like someone mickey moused it. I talked to a guy at the parts store and he said somethin about runnin one of the wires from the 2 wire connector to the charging post and then it acts like a generator on a tractor and will cause all the lights to pulse or flicker. He said hot rodders used to do that. Any help would be great. I bought a new connectoralready and I'm gettin a new alt., but I think theres more to it. Like in how it's wired up. there is also some cut wires in the loom before the alt. should one of the cut wires go to the the connector where the one wire goes from the connector to the charging post? Also the charge wire looks kinda small and goes to the battery. One site shows it goin to the starter, and the other wires to the ignition/gen. light and main buss(fuse box?). Is mine not goin to the ignition switch? It has to be goin to the main fuse panel or nothing would have power to run. Heres some pics to show what I mean.
