I’m installing a 3 Phase Podtronics regulator / rectifier on a ’79 Triumph T40E. I’ll be installing the unit on the bottom of the battery tray and have a pretty good handle on how to wire it, but have a couple of questions;
- Where is a good ground location? I’ve read that the location of the old Zener diode or rectifier are good spots. However my Zener was installed on the aluminum airbox, and the rectifier was installed on the rear fender. These do not seem like good grounding locations. How about running a ground wire to the ground point on the head steady? Also should the ground wire have a fuse?
- I understand that the wire to the Zener should be terminated and taped off. The Zener connecting on my bike has two Brown/Blue wires going into a single spade connector. Same with the power wire to the rectifier. I believe that one of these wires come from the ignition switch. Do I leave these two double wired spade connection intact or do I need to separate them and only tape off one of them?
