Wiring up a single post Alternator

I want to install a single wire Alternator with the reg built into it, for my 69 Mach 1.
What do i have to do for this installation as far as the wiring goes ?
would it require a new harness or can i make the old one work ?

I also relize this question has been asked before but after reviewing all the posts with the subject of alternator I gave up and came here.

That is what a 1-wire alternator is.... 1-wire... For instance if you are using a Powermaster Alternator it works off RPM.... When you start the car and it reaches a certain RPM it turns on..... It's that simple...

Good Luck, Billy

Here is some great information about one wire and three wire alternators, from MAD Enterprises:

You might want to consider a three wire, I did, I am putting a Delco 12SI 94 A alternator on the Cougar.
