What is the difference between a 1 wire and 2 wire alternator?
2 wire has a live wire to energise the field where as the single wire alternator self energises and does not need the powered feed.

There's a big and small difference, the main one being, wired connections use a physical wire to connect the network or computers or what ever needs a connecting together. A …wireless connection uses an wireless connection to connect everything up. The similarities, they both do the same job, connect things up. They both can connect multiply things up (wired is more difficult as you have wires to conceal and plug in). The differences, wireless is less safe even though you can put a pass phrase or hide the SSID (the name of the wireless) it can still be 'tapped' in to, a wired connection you have to be physically plugging something into a wire, which is difficult to do and also not intelligent. That's a basic explanation of the 2. SSID stands for Service Set Identifier (ID coming from Identifier, and identification, Service Set is the device that is broadcasting the wireless signal).
The '12' and '14' refers to the gauge of the wire. A 14 gauge wire is used for circuits drawing 15 amps or less; general lighting and outlets. A 12 gauge wire is used for 20 a…mp circuits, like dishwashers, disposals, and microwaves. The '-2' refers to the number of conductors in the wire. 14-2 is a 14 gauge wire with 2 conductors in the sheath. A 14-3 with ground would have three conductors plus a ground in the sheath, for a total of four wires, and is most often used for ceiling fan wiring and three way switches.
A two core cable is used where an earth is not required. A three core cable is used where an earth is requred. Specialised three core cables are available for 3 phase and two-…way switching applications.

The first number indicates the size of the wires, in this case #10 AWG (American Wire Gauge). The last number refers to the quantity of conductors, excluding the ground wire, …if any.. 10-2 wire would have two conductors, typically a black used for the hot, and a white used for the neutral. If the label says "10-2 with ground" then the cable would also contain a bare or green insulated ground wire.. 10-3 wire contains all the above plus one more wire, typically red, used for an additional hot.
1-0 or 1/0 actually means one zero and is thus pronounced "won aught". In the US, wire is sized per American Wire Gauge or AWG which gets larger as the gauge size gets smalle…r. 1 AWG wire is pretty big wire (about 1/4" in diameter). 1/0 or "0" AWG wire is a bit larger. By contrast, 4/0 (0000) AWG wire is about 1/2" in diameter). The larger the wire, the higher the current carrying capacity. .

Both 12-2 and 14-2 wire have 2 wires in a single cord. Neither contains a ground wire. Size 12 wire is a larger wire than size 14 wire. Size 12 wire can carry more amperage wi…thout getting hot and burning up. They would not be used for house wiring or machinery since they do not have a ground wire.
Cable with a designation of 12 - 2 will have a black, white and bare ground in the cable set. Cable with a designation of 12 - 3 will have a black, white, red and bare ground …in the cable set
10 is the gauge of the wire, 2 and 3 are how many leads are in the wire. For instance 10-2 wire is 10 gauge with two leads, 10-3 is 10 gauge with three leads.
spt-1, spt-2 & spt-3 wire difference: #3 has the thickest exterior .................................. The longer answer: spt-1, spt-2 & spt-3 = Stranded, Parallel, Thermopla…stic (lamp cord) = "zip wire." It is the commonly-seen, flat, 2-conductor electrical cord found in most homes, with #18 gauge stranded copper wire inside. They connect table lamps, fans, clocks, extension cords, & Christmas lights. The difference between SPT-1 , SPT-2 and SPT-3 rests with their protective exterior, each having heavier construction than the previous number. All are rated for a 7 amp load. Electricians like "zip cord" because the parallel wires can easily be snipped and pulled apart (unzipped) to quickly wire a plug or lamp. ---spt-3: is the newest cord , it has the thickest thermoplastic insulator, and has been the required size for most consumer electric items since the 1980's. ---spt-1: has the thinnest exterior and was introduced around the 1950's as the modern replacement for the twisted-pair cloth+rubber cords of the 1920's. Although spt-1 is still sold on spools, it has been gradually phased out for most consumer lighting because UL lab tests showed it prone to wear when people abused it (running under carpets, extreme abrasion, etc.). SPT-1 can still be found on many light-duty Christmas sets. .......... written by dave from austin, texas

I would connect the L lead to the dash light for alternator fault and from there to the ignition switch and the S lead directly to the alternator output connection. If there i…s no light, use a 35-300 Ohm resistor between the L lead and the ignition switch.
A one wire alternator has one wire that sends electricity to the battery and electrical system. They usually always have an internal regulator.
\n. You can tape them off and tuck them away. One wire was for the idiot light and the other wire was a trigger wire to excite the old alternator.
Yes, if it shorts to ground internally.
