Anybody know how this alt needs wired? It has two prongs on it, one big and one smaller. I was guessing the big one is the output, going to the starter or directly to the battery, and the small one would read voltage. Should I take the voltage reading from the battery?
Thanks

Yes, the big one goes to battery plus, and the small one goes to the warning light.
