Sense wire for 12si alternator
Hi there, searching hasn't found the exact answer I am looking for. I am replacing my alternator (with a Powermaster 47294), and have read JeepHammer's explanations that the alternator sense wire is better connected somewhere downstream, rather than back to the BATT lug on the alternator. I've got an 80 CJ5, and I am looking for a good place to run this wire. I've upgraded most of the charging wires, added the requisite extra grounds, and have my headlights, electric fans etc. running off relays.
Where is a good location to run the sense wire, exactly? Is the starter solenoid not far enough away? How about running to the positive battery terminal? I'm looking for some specific ideas, other than just "down stream."
