i am trying to wire in a c20, cav gsi alternator to a mini wiring loom and need a little assistance, i have the main live feed going back to the starter-battery that i believe is correct, i then have a blue and white wire, quite small in diameter coming from next to the main feed wire on the rear of the alt, were does this go/what function does it have ? and then i guess ill have to earth it in the same way the cav gsi had it(earth lead from the alternator body to the engine
im using a cav mk2 dizzy and coil pack, i have 3 wires
earth, going to earth, a green wire - that is going to my mini loom and my car starts!! even though the + wire is not connected? it carries a current and when i connect this to earth or the dash board ignition wire the engine cuts any ideas??
