Alternator Wires?

Can someone post a pic of the back of their stock external voltage regulator alternator so I can hook up the 2 small wires to the right posts. I've seen this asked a lot on the net but no pics.
Thank You.

Here's what I got.

How about the Electrical Section of the FSM instead? 77 was the same as 76.

I think what you want is in Figure 3-6

the red wire will only slip over the small post. its push on. the orange one should use a nut to hold the wire on

It helps some. So I guess this other wire with the 90* elbow must go someplace else.
So the alt only has 2 wires instead of 3? This is why a pic would help, so I can see exactly what should be hooked up working alt, on a running engine.
