Re: alternator wiring question

Thanks Gerhard
Yes i had found that same image but i'm still not too sure about the meaning 
stator taps?
I _think_ this is a point to which you can attach a tachometer and it gets an output current that is proportional to the induced current in the stator windings?
but my rev counter runs off the main engine alternator 
so i'm left wondering what else the white wire could be 

I guess my main concern is will i damage anything without it connected

My guess is no - i might just notice a light off somewhere??

perhaps i'll just need to try and see

thanks for your advice

All the best
Miles
