    Hello, I'm back. One more minor detail. I installed the new engine wire harness. There are three wires to the alternator. Two wires with spade connectors, one blue with a tracer and the other is green. On the alternator both of these terminals have the same stamp or marking. Does it matter which terminal these two wire connect to? I attached the shorter one to the inside terminal. Am I good to go? It's been 30 years since I have done any of this stuff. Thanks to everyone that has help me with this project.

    Yes it doesn’t matter which terminal they go on the field
