    Original Alternator Installation Mk2 Question.

    Hi gang.
    As I'm slowly putting my big jigsaw puzzle back together I'm finding gaps in my documenting how stuff fits. I had the original alternator rebuilt but when installing it I have put the rubber connector onto the back, but there's a spare wire (brown) that seems to not go anywhere. Is there a 2nd connector on the alternator I've missed or this this for a GT alt gauge (which I don't have)?

    How have you gone with finding a wiring diagram? I'm electrically incompetent, but I've been able to figure stuff out OK with a wiring diagram and some healthy skepticism.

    mine has 2 wires a brown and i dunno as its dirty

    one goes to a lug with a bolt the brown goes to a plug on alternator

    gt gauge just went in series with the alternator output wire

    Any chance you could shoot me a photo? I wonder if mine is supposed to go to a lug but they didn't put the fitting back on when they rebuilt it? Is it an earth? Cheers,
    Rob.
