In 86 you they used either a 10si or 12si alt. regardless they are both wired and function the same, the terminal can go to the battery, on the plug you will find a red 10ga wire (located to your right ,holding tab up and the plug facing away from you) this wire can be hooked directly to the battery aswell. The other wire usually white 16/18 ga, is your voltage sensing wire and is hooked up through your ignition switch it then goes through a combination of a light and usually a resistor wired in parllel (used as a failsafe in case the light fails).This wire is used to excite the field to close the circuit turning the light off and start charging , with out the sensing wire with a light (as resistance) you end up with a hunk of copper and metal that does nothing.

There are lots of Chevrolet models. You will have to be more specific.

I assume your talking about the rectangular plug right at the alternator, and that your new Alt came with a short repair harness, the 2 heavy wires are BAT and the slim and likely white one is Tachometer AC sense, likely that 3 of the old ones were Bat test the old connector with a test light to see which of them have power to them.

Take the negative battery cable off then the wires off the alt then loosten the bolts holding it on and remove the belt then remove the bolts and alternator. Hi. I'm the fellow who put this question out on Friday night. Don't drop the axle if all you want to do is change the brushes. Just remove the alternator from it's bracket, disconnect the two wires goimg to it and just sit the alternator in a way you can do the brushes. Brushesprocedure is about 5 minutes. Good luck, Donald

Detach the negative terminal from your battery, detach the wires from the alternator, detach the drivebelt by loosening the pivot bolts and the adjusting screw for the alternator and then slipping it off. fully loosen the bolts and the others that are holding the alternator to the engine, they are fairly easy to find and then go to buy a new one. Wherever you go to purchase a new one BRING YOUR OLD ALTERNATOR WITH YOU. You will need to visually compare them to make certain they are EXACTLY THE SAME. the parts number should be printed on a label on your alternator, make CERTAIn that it is THE SAME as the number on your new alternator.

There are two bolts on the bottom of the alternator that you can't see but you can feel them, these are the pivot bolts, remove them. Then remove the adjustment bolt on top of the alternator. Remove wiring from back of alternator. Reverse instructions for install.

The voltage regulator is an integral part of the alternator. I would recomend replacing the alternator.

After disconnecting the battery cables at the battery, disconnect the wires on the starter, then unbolt the starter. With the starter unbolted, pull it forward towards the front of the vehicle, then drop the nose of the starter and bring ti to the ground.
