I have one last yellow alternator wire that I need help with. My Mustang lost (or should I say my sister lost) almost every original part over the years. (could also be blamed on my drunken college days in Dallas!!!!) In the alternator picture, the yellow wire plugs to a silver object that looks like a condensor or something. What is that thing called and where can I buy it???? I have seen photo's where this is attached below the voltage regulator.

It's a Noise suppression capacitor. I'll check around for a source but Ford might still have these.

Don at OMS may have them so I'd give him a call first. If not you can get one here:

No Mustangs at the moment.
I have a couple used radio noise suppression capacitors in good shape. PM me if you want one.

Don't have any idea about the farad rating. Ford kept that a deep dark secret!

Just put a multimeter onto it in capacitance setting. Any half decent multimeter has this ability.
