  1. Hurray your back. I could log on with my android phone yesterday but my PC couldn't find new server. All good today. TV constantly updating on protests and Looting in USA. hope you are all safe and well. Cheers Paul.
  2. I could have worded it better. Don't install fuse links in earth cabels. Put a fuse link in circuit with the new 100A 4GA cable from B+ alternator to solenoid post ( Battery side ). The mounting bolts may earth alternator but my new alternator came with earth bolt terminal and instructions to install earth strap. Removed alternator had earth cable to engine but definitely not capable 100A. Mike65 search 1G to 3G alternator conversion Mach 1 Driver wrote a very informative post.
  3. The CJ PONYPARTS part is designed to be OEM so probably rated at about 60A . I would install cable to match your alternator output , ie 95A. Same size cable from B+ to solenoid post and a matching fusable link is a good idea.
  4. Members 508 1,297 posts Report post Posted 1 hour ago Indeed I will! And: I have no idea. The shunt circuitry is designed based upon very small differences of wire resistance due to wire gauge, length, and joint location, and is something that I cannot (will not? care not to?) fool around with. The circuit is designed to allow milli-amps to the ammeter while the rest of the circuit runs on the order of 30-60 amps. You need a micro-ohm meter to do it correctly and I do not know Ford's design in enough detail. After 50+ years, wire resistance changes due to age/corrosion making it impossible to reverse-engineer the circuitry with enough fidelity. Hi Midlife, I'm a retired electrician so I understand the theory. I'm not planing repairing amp meter. I still have some of the external regulator wiring and 38BK 38A BK to remove to tidy up wiring. I just did what was required to get car back on road to do a weekend run. Stanthorpe is a area 2.5 hours drive SW from Brisbane doing it tuff from drought and bush fires. They have had some rain and country looks green but their dam is empty and trucking water in for town water. No grape harvest this year - no work for backpackers - so they are not in town spending money in local business. So 13 mustangs and passengers spent the weekend in town doing wine tours , function at local hotel and dining at cafes and motel accommodation. We also raised a nice donation for local Volunteer Fire Brigade. Sorry for getting of topic. Cheers Paul.
  5. Hi Mach 1 Driver, Thanks for the wiring diagram. I have just changed my alternator to single wire 100A unit and 100A cable to solenoid post ( I need to add fuse). The wiring diagram I have didn't match the colour code of my 69 amp meter car. I have 69 sports roof fitted with a Aussie late 70 ties Falcon 351C by PO. Alternator was 60A with external electronic regulator not shore if it was from 69 or came with 351C. How long is 38A shunt wire and where in car / loom is the link to 38BK, 37BK/Y, 654Y ? Cheers Paul
  6. You could use a kit like this. Ties down all 4 tyres and car also rides on its own suspension.
