1965 f100 altenator

okay guys, this is driving me crazy. got a 1965 f100 with a 1985 302 in it. im trying to wire the altenator per the wiring diagrams that i have found for a 1964. it aint working that way. i have the 2 6 gauge wires(b/y and blk) one goes from the volt meter to the junction block,then from the junction block to the regulator and to thealtenator. the other, from the other side of the volt meter spliced in with the yellow wire from the ignition, to the other post on the junction block, then to the starter relay. problem is i have constant voltage at the regulator. i cant figure this crap out!!!!! help!!

I find what your doing hard also. I just put a one wire Delco alt on all my classics. It's simple and I need it simple.

on the junction block, is that all alternator wiring? is the big b/y cable coming from the gauge? and is the blk cable coming from the regulator? also is that a yellow or white wire on the j block, and where is it going or coming from? on the starter relay, i know the one cable is coming from the battery, where are the other 2 coming from? sorry about all the questions, but i have tried alot of different ways with no success.

Not that knowledgeable when it comes to automotive electrical circuits. Apparently there a couple of variation to run the circuit but my 65 wiring manual was no help so the gauge did not get installed for several months. A FTE member emailed a diag., and for me the circuit finally made sense. One of my concerns was running high ampherage to the instrument cluster, so I decided to use a fuse block. Posting a pic of the diag. may be different than tmb3fam's. If decide to use the diag. strongly suggest doing the research and make sure you feel safe with the installation and that it meets the trucks application.

In my gallery I have a pic of the fuse block.

The two large wires, with the kind of beaten up brown insulation, on the junction box and bat side of solenoid are from the amp gauge. The black wire and yellow wire on the junction block are from the alternator (bat terminal) and regulator. The last one of the solenoid, black-yellow stripe is from the harness which runs along the back into the cab.
