New Old Alternator

I bought a replacement alternator for my 68 mustang. My car came in boxes, so i do not know how it was originally wired. I found the Alternator Wire harness in one of the boxes and hooked it up to the new Alternator. There are two posts that do not have wires going to them. See picture. I am assuming that something goes to them? I am sure you guys will set me straight. Almost ready to fire this baby up.

If at first you don't succeed, buy another Mustang.

The red is your power for the alternator. The other you don't need to hook a wire up. Well, it might be the ground actually.

Run a wire to the battery or the power side of the solenoid?

There are 2 harnesses. The main one and a small harness that connects to it. You should have one wire connected to to the power side of the solenoid and the other connected to the alternator.

Pictures would be great. How about the other post. Is that a ground?
