I need help with Powermaster alternator

    I bought this new Powermaster with a wiring harness for an F350 Powerstroke. The new wiring harness seemed to be just an extension of the stock harness that plugs into the OEM alternator. The OEM plug has 2 wires. The new plug has 3 wires. It's obvious where 2 wires go. The third wire I have no clue. It is a yellow/white wire with a circle-spade end to attatch under a bolt. Does it go to? 1) nothing 2) ground 3) + output post on alternator. I am going crazy trying to get someone at Powermaster on the phone, since friday.:realmad: :confused: Anyone have the same set-up and know if the wire should be connected. You'd think there would be info with a $500'ish item like this. Any ideas out there?

    There is no specific info to hookup these wires. I prolly got the wrong wiring harness from Summit. I got a g6 to g3 adapter. Whatever that means. You'd think i need the Ford IAR adapter but Summit Racing is clueless to the questions. Powermaster is on their weekly Alternator Holiday vacation. :nono: :nono:
    I think i might run it down to a local howdy-doody parts guy and let him test it.:rolleyes:
