GM genarator wiring. I have a brown wire a gray and a blue wire. Were do they go on the genarator.
The brown wire is the feild wire I, beleave. I don't have the condensor, can i run the car with that not hooked up. I think that's for the radio to reduce statick. If you have a condensor i would be interested in buying it.

CHECK WIRES AT REGULATOR THE HEAVYIER WIRE SHOULD MATCH THE A POST ON GENERATOR TO THE GEN POST ON REG .THE F POST ON GEN AND REG SHOULD HAVE SAME COLOR WIRE.IF THERE IS A GROUND WIRE ON REG IT SHOULD MATCH COLOR OF THE 3 RD WIRE.YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE CONDENSOR BEING FOR RADIO.CAR WILL RUN WITHOUT A GEN CONDENSOR. HOPE THIS HELPS AND SOMEONE HAS NOT PATCHED WIRES WITH WRONG COLOR.IF SO CHECK EACH WIRE TO FIND OUT WITH OMN METER OR TEST LIGHT.
