Trying to rewire a...

Trying to rewire a 302. Cant find any wiring diagrams for the alternator/regulator I have. Ford parts and service wont help me without a vehicle VIN. This is a studebaker restomod so the vin means nothing for the part. Any suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to help find that for your Studebaker. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

I am using a painless wiring harness and the engine has 4 barrel carb with electronic module and aftermarket Vintage AC system

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
