Here is the alt with the diode trio and bridge rectifier removed. Alternator coils installed, new voltage regulator installed, old brushes reused, 4 wire conversion done, purple wire brings in power to the voltage rectifier from the remote schottky trio, gland seal strain relief installed.
I used 10 gauge wire for the lines and neutral because I bought 4 more partial 500 foot rolls of black and white 10 gauge for pennies on the dollar so for the foreseeable future I will be using 10 gauge wire as opposed to 12 gauge.
The motor brushes are being held back with a pin.

The purple wire will allow me to cut power to the exciter.

All the crimp connections are soldered because that's how it came from the factory and it seems to have worked well.
