on the stock alt there should be a harness on the side and on the top.
in the top harness there are 3 wires, mine are 2 black with a red stripe and a white.

the middle black with red stripe is the one you want.

.. or instead of engine to chassis, just go from the alternator bracket bolt to the neg of the battery. Buying another battery is only going to get you a bit more playing time if you're dimming badly. Have you looked at all the HO custom alternator manufacturers for an alt? I'd want to move up a little higher than that just to have some overhead in the future.

That's Dominick Iraggi, email him, give him the info on your vehicle and ask him for a list of alternators that will fit your ride.

That should help a lot. Post some pictures of your engine compartment as well. I'll see if I can help you out.
