This page here covers that alternator, click here.
I'll be back with the wiring diagram.
For the entire wiring diagram, click here.
This shows all the hookups.
I havent come across a voltage regulator yet but what i have found is that the wires for D+ and DF run to separate box where i would normally find a voltage regulator (up front by the grill and headlights) and they are the only wires feeding into it and the box is labeled D+ and DF.
If its any help the old alternator is motorcraft / (bosch label on the back)

Ok, it has to be because this alternator on there now came with this engine and this engine isn't original. Do you know what it came out of?
Actually, once you get the voltage regulator, you should be able to hook it up by the diagram I gave you. Are the color of the wires the same as what was it that diagram that I colored in the wires?
pay no attention to mustang its a fairlane and your right the closest to a 76 fairlane is a LTD they stopped making Fairlanes in 1970 back home
no the wiring is different i got 2 yellows in the mix i think after 30 years theres been some chnages made by previous owners
no i dont, i thought 4 wires to the old alternator, i could simply take those 4 wires and plug them up to the new alternator
ok so it sounds like i now need to get a voltage regulator and wire it all up like new, any idea what voltage regulator to get then?
ok should be able round one of those up, i have one off of my old car but that had a 55A alternator on it as well. Can i use that one or does it have to be a different one since i'll be using 100amp alternator now
Is it a motorcraft? Give me the part number off of it. It should work, I see autozone lists them for 35, 38, 40, 42, 55, 60, 61, 65, 70, 100 Amp. Motorcraft Equipped
you know what at those prices i'm gonna save myself the headache of searching for it and just grab one new.
now once i have it and mounted, i simply wire it up like the diagram you provided?
the question i have is with the 1 prong coming off the voltage regulator. The ground wire connects to there and then the green/red wire also connects to it? and that green/red wire what does that connect to from there my Alt dashboard light?
