Having problems with your 1983 Ford F150 ?
I had to replace my alternator and voltage regulator, (external) and I'm not getting any charge to the battery. I'm wondering if I simply need an external ground or do I need to replace the wiring bundle from the alternator to the voltage regulator...this is an 83 F150, 302, it starts and runs fine, but I don't want to ruin a battery
Where did you buy the new alternator? Are you sure the alternator is good? Have the alternator tested before you spend time/money on your other components. If your wires are damaged or corroded, that's another problem.
