The MAD article on bypassing the amp and direct wiring the alternator to the battery was used to modify the 74 Duster. The amp meter was converted to a voltmeter by Redline guages. The original alternator wire from the alt to the battery still has battery voltage with the key off as before the conversion. Should this wire be reconnected or eleminated?

Thanks for the replies. The problem is the loose original alternator wire hanging in the engine compartment with over 12 volts available at all times.

When the bypass of the alternator was made, a 10 guage wire was connected between the the alternator and battery. The original regulator wires remained connected to the alternator. The original wire from the battery through the amp meter to the alternator was disconnected at the alternator, this wire still has battery voltage with the key on or off. The ampeter was disconnected and the two wires were spliced this loccation.
