i'm pretty sure i found it on the right fender. had to work late so i couldn't check it out last night. there's white and black there going to ground and noise suppressor/capacitor/whatever thingy, black and yellow which also matches oem schematics for volt reg., and a black connector, that's the one that's screwing me up. schematic shows white/green. the white/black and white/green make it at least from left over to the battery on the right. i'll know the rest of the story tomorrow.

Cool. I don't know pig wire routing hardly at all, having never owned one. As I'm sure you know, on 40s the regulator goes under the brake booster.

Here's something you'll have to deal with: Obviously, some PO or other (don't we all H8 POs?) connected the wiring from the alternator directly to the rest of the system, instead of going through the regulator. You'll have to locate where the connection was made, disconnect it and re-route and reconnect it the way it was supposed to be. Clear as mud?

While the schematics in the manual is super-helpful, they don't tell jack about routing.

Ige you never cease to amaze me . You got that all done compared to what I've managed which was getting just one rotor/hub off the LX last night, and that was the size where the hub bolts and cone washers were already loose

Have safe, and fun, trip over to Montrose
