I recently scored an old link arc welder160. From what I know, it's basically an old version of the premier power welder. An alternator came with it but is way too big to fit. Now time for the questions:
1. What are the wires coming out of the alternator for. I was able to find a very basic diagram, but when they are labeled as "blue" or "orange" it's difficult to figure it out. Here's the diagram
2. Assuming some one knows what the wires actually are, would it be possible to wire it up to a durango alternator thAt would already bolt up in place of mine (01 4cyl tj). I ask this because looking at my alternator I feel like I see two battery cables and a two wire plug. While the one with the welder has four, plus a few extras hanging off a ways down the wire bundle
3. Does the welder need all of these wires or are some of them just for dummy lights on the dash??
I have searched a fair amount and haven't been able to find too much info about any of these questions. I'm hoping one of the electrical gurus on here will at least point me in the right direction.
