140 amp alternator upgrade/problem/??
Okay, it's been a while, but you guys helped me before. I have a '96 Chevy 5.7liter. I upgraded from the factory 105 amp, to a 140 amp alternator. The problem I have now is that the brown wire/flat connector at the left rear of the alternator is different than what I have. I have a 1-wire connection with rounded corners. The new alternator has a 1-wire also, but the connector is rectangular. Does anyone know if the brown wire is just to the guage in the cab, and can I cut/splice in a rectangular connector and be okay? I have to figure someone has done this already. The stealership has no idea if it will work or not.
