alternator positive wire
« on: Feb 20, 2007, 05:37:40 PM »
the thick wire coming off my alternator has a eyelet on it.... what do i connect this to? i think i remember there being a little black box with a stud in it and that stud had another wire that went to the battery...

was this a fusible link? ( i think i heard it was)

if it was a fusible link, what was it rated to? i dont know what happened to it, and i may not be able to find one in the junkyards

The 175a fuse was for the guys alternator upgrade.  The factory fuse is a 80amp.

Its located in the black plastic fuse box next to the battery in my '86 and '87.

You can hook it up directly to the battery.  Putting a fuse inline on this wire would be a good idea though, for protection.  This wire is fused from the factory in the missing black box.

i obtained a new black box, there isnt a fuse inside of it, all it appears to be is a bracket with a plastic box, and a stud and nut to connect 2 eyelet wires

i have a fat wire from an old stereo i am planning on using, and i will be putting eyelet connectors on it this week if this is the proepr thing to do
