Folks sorry for the double tap but forgot how the dash light was wired before? This is reference to I recently had alternator rebuilt/converted to a one wire but would like to get dash light working if able. I'm told it may work running wire from T1 to light. Question is do I run other light wire to ground or to key switch ?

See alternator was a 3 wire unit before being converted. If I recall correctly 2 alternator wires went to solenoid and one went to key switch. The dash light had one wire to ground and 1 wire to key switch. However now it's a 1 wire alternator.

Nope! He's talking about the GEN tellite, Not the light that illuminates the dash. Read his other posts.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. So we are talking about the charge (idiot)light.!! I've understood that it would be next to impossible to have a charge light function properly with a one wire alternator, but my knowledge electricity goes about as far as using a test light.

Two wires from the dash light? One to a good ground and the other to the light switch, the same post that feeds the headlights. Don't forget to put a 12 volt bulb in the dash light fixture if you have an alternator. Single wire dash lit fixture? head for the lite switch.

Today's Featured Article - Two-Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. Whether for product liability or because the aftermarket parts and labor business is lucrative, this concept is disturbingly prevalent. Fortunately when you step into your shop and make that jump 50 years back in time to work with your old tractor, this concept goes out the window. Even so, when it comes to the charging system, people quickly revert to this idea and start replacing the major components one at a time until it works. The reason you don't find any decals in your replacement set wit ... [Read Article]
