Is this doable?

I've already done the big 3 on my 73 Thunderbird....I just need a bigger/higher amp alternator for my system.
I was wondering if the alternator on a 95 4.6L would work....how would I go about wiring it up? and does it bolt in the same?

Anyone know?

well....I was hoping someone would have an anwser for me.....I guess what I need to do is figure out what each connector/wire does on each alternator, then figure if I can swap the 2.

Can someone tell me what each spot were the wires connect on the stock 95 4.6L alternator do?

Found this, and this seems like it might work...http://www.tffn.net/altwirng.html

My question is, if you look at the wiring diagram, it shows 1 wire(LT green/red) going to the instrument cluster then to????I'm guessing just a keyed switch/hot?

Mounting an alternator off a modular engine onto a non-modular engine will be "interesting". :beek:
