3G Alternator wiring

Putting in a newer alternator in my 66, just one question now - do I NEED to have a 560-ohm resistor on that last wire or can I just cut and shrink sleeve it off?


thanks!

3-G Wiring

I'm not sure which "last wire" you are referring to but there is no resistor in the 3-G hookup. See attachment

I was looking at this diagram, which lists the 560 ohm resistor.

I have been running the 3G for 7 years wired per the diagram I posted without a problem. I have a voltmeter rather than the warning light that your diagram shows. The resistor is just a bypass incase the warning light bulb fails.
