The alternator part is not too bad, but the changes required at the old
regulator can be difficult. If you will snail-mail me a copy of your
schematic, I will be happy to send you complete directions for the wiring
changes. The changes are simple, but without the schematic, I can't give you
the color codes, and it is difficult to describe otherwise.
