If I replace the rectifier (the one by the battery) with a new regulator rectifier do I still need the regulator (under the battery) or am I missing something
If I replace the rectifier the one by the battery with a new regulator...
problably will get the combo unit, have to connect the wire from the regulator into it also
Nope. Disconnect regulator. No need for it afterwards.
Tape the ends off...
You'll connect to the 3 stator wires and run the neutral light connection into the new plug then connect the the 2 4 pins and you're set
so tape off the yellow and green and add some wire and connect the black up to the single black wire off the new rect/reg. Then plug in the 4 pin connectors
... I'll look at colors hold on bud.
or connect the black into the starter magnet switch cause its closer but I would need a two prong female connector, I think adding a wire from the strator black is the way to do it
No. Black to ground. Red to positive. At the battery. The 3 white wires (on ricks units) go to the three stator wires. The green with red stripe is neutral switch wire, I left my out, cause I don't use it. But if you do you simply make the connection into the stock spot in the harness and into the plug.
