Alternater Rebuild

Had my alternator rebuilt on a 325 Cummings DP with an external what looks like a condenser. When I go it back the green wire and red wire on the condenser were connected to the post that the red(hot) lead goes to. This can not be correct, can it?. I do not remember where the green wire was connected.

I cannot help with your specific alternator.

However, my chassis manual has about 5 pages of Alternator description and testing procedures that if available for your rig might answer the question.

My old rig has a 160A Leece-Neville with the Duvac system.

Not sure where they go, green is usually ground. Maybe they where put this way just for shipping? Drawing before wires removed should be made, I know bit late now.

I would contact the outfit that rebuilt the alternator and ask them to explain it to me.
