Messed up wiring, need help
After owning my car for a year and a half I finally started having electrical issues(I knew they'd come eventually). One day it kinda started not charging. Every time I drove the car it was getting weaker. I gave it the voltmeter test and the "yank the ground" test and both confirmed that somewhere the car wasn't charging.
After looking into the lack of charging I noticed something kinda bad. The car is a '62 and came with a 144 and a generator. Now it sports a 289 and the corresponding '67 alternator. However, whoever did the wiring just kinda slapped it together and left the old voltage regulator with the new alternator.
Here I will say, I changed none of the wiring to cause it to stop charging, that all just happened overnight.
This is how the wiring is with the car uncharging. I'll list the item, where the wire is connected, the wire color and where it goes.
White-STA-Wire is snipped 6" from alt
Black/Red-BAT-Wire goes to battery(+) and a yellow wire into the firewall
Black-GND-Wire is snipped 6" from alt
Pink/Blue-"Post under BAT"-Goes to FLD on VR
Black/White-FLD-To "Post under BAT" on alternator
Black-BAT-To battery (+)
Black/Red Ground-Not grounded to anything, snipped 2' from VR
I'm trying to sort everything out and I am quite confused. I would like to install the proper voltage regulator and get the wires in the right order. If anybody knows what's up. Please help.
