Default 1982 FC 3208 NA Alternator connection

Removed the alternator to have it repaired. Made a diagram of all the wires but some how lost it! The positive, negative, and regulator are obvious but I have three "orphan" wires. A black wire with a small eye paired with a white wire with a large eye. these go down the right side of the motor. There is also a white wire with a small eye on it that goes up toward the dash. Any help with the proper connection of these wires would be appreciated! I usually snap a preliminary picture with my phone when I start a disassembly. Forgot the phone and made a drawing then lost it!

I don't know the answer, but if you know the make and model of the alternator perhaps you can find a diagram on the net? It's a start. Perhaps the rebuilder can provide specs and you can figure out the wiring from there.

Solved it today. Started clopping tie wraps and pulling wires. The ones in question did not go any where! They ended around the Temp switch for the Horton fan. I believe that there was originally an electric fan from what the previous owner told me. Must be left over.

I had a Horton fan (air controlled via electric valve) on my previous FC. I recall chasing a problem to a wire from the alternator. I suspected it was a PO that wired it that way, but who know? Glad you fixed it.
