those are called "single wire alternator"... the two smaller wires are not needed. There job is done internal to the alternator by using power from the single wire. I have never heard of a single wire positive ground alternator, but could be. You need to deetermine what you have before you connect. You cant have the case grounded to the frame, and the power cable connected to the negative terminal of the battery...positive ground... Something will burn up

I changed it over to negative ground. I found papers and posts that said by changing the wires around on the coil it would change to negative ground. And that those old starters didnt matter which way it was hooked up because they didn't have fixed magnets.have u ever heard of this.I don't really wanna burn the tractor up.but I could rebuild the starter if need be

Your on the right path. Switching the wires on the coil will make it last longer. Starter will not have a problem. Main thing is the battery. DONT connect the alternator up unless the negative cable is grounded and the positive cable goes to the starter / solenoid / ect. see the drawing.

A single wire alternator is wired just like the picture. You just dont have the two smaller wires and signal voltage resistor on your system.
