So when I swapped over the buick V6 to the Pontiac 400 i may have messed up some of the wiring. Car starts and runs fine, but my alternator does not charge the system. I only had the one brown little wire going to it. I believe I should have about a 10 gauge red wire going to the screw on the back, correct? Well I have 2 10 gauge red wires going from the terminal block to the starter. They are both connected to the starter with one eyelet clip. I am thinking one of these need to go to the alternator? Does anybody out there know??????????
