I just got home on leave and after it's been sitting up for 3 yrs all I needed to get my Bronco running was a new starter(Free, gotta love Auto Zone), battery($70) and the solonoid on the fender($8). Now it just needs some TLC to be running as good as it did before I left in '03. I have however found more rust then there was when I left. I also found that my wires were disconnected from my alternator and I have no clue who unhooked them and I also have no clue on how they are supposed to be hooked up, so if any one can take a picture of how there wires are connected I would really appreciate it. It's an '84 w/a 351 Windsor and stock alternator and wiring nothing special. Thanks

Welcome to the Zone > . Post some pictures of your truck when you get a chance. Here are two diagrams, one for a system with charge indicator light and one for a dash mounted ammeter. The color of the wires is noted next to each, for ex. BK/O = Black with Orange stripe

good luck,
