    So I have the motor installed and I am trying to use the surpintine belt system. The 92 alt does not "plug in" to the 85 wiring harness... How do I modify the wiring harness to make the alt work?

    I believe the adapter GM makes solves your problem.

    oldsmail.com (?) in the tech section might list the part you need for that kind of "alt swap".

    I thought there was an adapter as well, but I called Romaine Auto Electric in Seattle and they didnt know of one... Oh yeah, I tried oldsmail.com and the server is WAY down (We're sorry due to catastrophic server failure Hotrodmail.com is currently unavailable)

    You can get the adapter at any autozone. its in the "help" parts section. Match up the plug. The plug has two wires in it (red and brown iirc) But only the red wire needs to ge hooked up to your harness. The other wire that goes that goes to the stud on the alternator still fits and goes on the new alt. Its an easy swap.
