There are 2 wire connections on the rear/near the rear of the alternator. A plug with 2 thin wires (field) and a heavier one with an eyelet that attaches to the output stud (battery). If these wires are not connected, the alternator will NOT work. If the heavier one was disconnected and allowed to touch ground with the battery cables on, then the fuse-link for it will be blown and the alternator will not work until the fuse-link is replaced.
