[collectibles] Help with wire color to altenator

Help! am restoring a UK registered 85 XJ6. The P.O. had a ford
altenator and the wires were pulled off during restoration. I have
replaced with a genuine 75 amp lucas altenator. However I dont
know the color of the wires to connect? There are several wires
hanging around that location, one of which I think went to the A/C
(when it had A/C) Can any one tell me the color of the wires
sonnected to the back of their altenator on a similar car. Help
woukld be greatly appreciated.–

Paul,

The collectibles list is for things like models, magazine ads,

emblems, books, Jaguar memorabilia that people like to collect. Your
question is better posted to the XJ list where we discuss the XJ cars.
Since you are asking about a Series III XJ6 and I own a couple of those,
I believe your answer is that there are two wires going to the
alternator, a brown wire (N) and a brown wire with a black tracer (NB).

Other on the XJ list might be able to help more. 

Regards,

Paul M. Novak
