Unfortunately after doing all of the steps in the swap guide, my alternator isn't charging the battery.
With the car off the battery had 12.5v
I turned it on (no lights/accessories) and it was around 12.4v
With lights and fan on highest speed it was 12v. And the fan was hardly blowing on its highest speed.
All of the wires for the 1975 year in the guide were the right color on my car, so I crimped the Green/Red wire to the White/Black wire.
Then I crimped White to Yellow.
The rest of the wires (Green and Black) I taped up the ends and left them dangling.
I think I did the wiring correctly, but I figured I'd post how I did it anyway.
For the alternator wiring I connected battery, earth, and the "T" connector.
But I found a strange blue wire in my battery connector for the alternator.
I think it connected to this thing on the back of the alternator. (Not my pic but it shows where it connects on the original alternator). http://img.photobuck...zps87ef6ea3.jpg
My old alternator had the blue wire plugged into that thing but it broke off just from me touching it.
My new alternator has one of those cylinder-shaped things on it but its connected to a bolt on the alternator itself. (Sorry I don't know what the things called lol)
So for my first question, do I need to connect this blue wire somewhere? Could that be why it isn't charging?
Here's an album I just made so you guys can see some pictures of it all. http://imgur.com/a/gM5pj
If you guys see anything in these pics that even MIGHT be a problem, please let me know.
Also If you guys want some more pics I'll go out and take some.
