the boat is a 1978 endeavour 32 , the alternator model # is; 20-182-11-1
lester 7973n
serial. 01.9b2
that is all i have on it....

does this sound reasonable 4th wire on the pigtail is a heavy red wire.....the alternator is marked S in this location.....and the wire does return to the battery positive post on the back of the alternator.....if i understand correctly, this is the sense wirre . making this setup a one wire in reality?
if this is correct all i need is that wire and the other battery positive red wire......that should give full alternator output to the batteries ?
then all i need to do is sort out the tach and the idiot lamp ....correct?the lamp is pretty clearly marked with the L......and according to a code i read somewhere the p terminal is the tach.......I have been reading for three days now and forget where and what i read .....but i did write down that i can do the lamp and tach at a later date? as i am not even sure they work at all......thanks everyone...Ron
