I hope it was okay that I used the word Ford, what a crock

I have a 130amp Ford 3G alternator with internal fan and regulator on my 64 Falcon Sprint project 5.0 roller block stroked to 331. I am just finishing up the final wiring and have one issue with some of the info I have read which seem to conflict each other.
I removed the old regulator that was associated with my Generator and have connected and removed everyone that will no longer be of service.
My question is this; The A terminal on the regulator drives a yel/wht wire which ties back into the 6ga blk/yel wire witch goes to the starter solenoid. The S terminal is the wht/blk wire which goes to the stator. The I terminal is the lg/red (light green/ red) wire and one wire diagram I read says it goes to the gauge and another says it goes to the ignition switch. Which is correct?
Can I ground the Alternator to the block or should it go to the chassis?
Also I'm running a small dia. starter can I use the later top bottom solenoid from a later model Mustang or should I have the original styled left right? What is the difference?
Thanks,
Ras Daniel

The green/red goes to the ignition switch. The yellow is the sense wire and sould be connected to the main load point (solenoid in this case).

Thanks for the response Kelly and 1bad6t that puts me at ease.
I also received a diagram from 1bad6t, this diagram is way bettter than the five I already have. I got looped by one saying to wire to the Gen light and the other saying to wire to the switch, this one says one or the other so I asume you wire to the Gen light only if you want to use it as a trouble light instead of watching the volt meter for a problem.
