    Rear wiring on alternator 1971 351c.

    You may have additional/different hookups for tach, but here is an illustration, i.e., look at the four wires that plug into voltage regulator. The terminals are labeled so you can make proper connections. If you are still not seeing it charge, it may be a electrical problem, use ohm meter to...

    Cooper Cobra or BFgoodrich ?

    My car spun into a wall wearing Cooper Cobra tires, I pass on Cooper. I am currently using BFG but will consider other options next time I am purchasing tires as the cost is 50 percent higher versus previous tire purchases.

    Replacing alternator harness on 71 Mustang

    I think that would be the best option, I will PM later and we can work out details on getting the harness from NPD modified. What is the difference between 14305-5A and 14305-6A? I did notice that one of the three plug's wires on my harness is thicker than the others (Black with Orange stripe).
