87 and up alternator(pulley must be swapped to the 86 as they are different)
87 and up alternator plug
87 and up resistor and plug(located on the relay tree on the drivers side of the engine bay)
The swap took almost a whole day. To clarify everything, I had to combine the charging diagrams from both an 88 and 86. Just a note, the red brake warning light on the dash of the 86 is also tied into the charging circuit. So, if you are having alternator issues, your dash brake light will illuminate. I think 87 and up has a separate charge/battery light.
I had to add the resistor and plug from my old 88 to the circuit. Mounted it right next to the coil:
Added an extra ground path for the alternator to the block:
Works great! Another benefit of the swap is now I have the option of running the higher amperage alternators from Monteros/Hyundais/etc....
