\015 How do I polarize alternator after installing new regulator in my 1989 saab 9000?\015
You dont. Alternators DO NOT require polarisation as they can only be fitted to vehicles that are wired as NEGATIVE EARTH. If you have replaced the Alt, reconnect the wiring, reconnect the battery - Positive lead first then the negative lead, then start the motor !!\015\012Using multimeter, check the charge rate at the battery. It should be around 13.8 volts. The charge rate SHOULD NOT go above 14.7 volts and if it does, turn the motor off immediately and recheck the connections, especially any battery voltage sensing wires. if nothing appears to be wrong, contact an auto electrician and have them check things out. I have known faulty regulators, even in new Alternators..
