Default Alternator HELP!

I have 1994 F150 did the motor swap to a 351W and it's not charging. The alternator is good. Is there any way to change my existing alternator into a one wire?

Not easily done on the internally regulated alternators.

I'd guess that one of the three regulator wires is not hooked to the proper source.

Its most likely the anticipation wire. Its the single small wire that runs by itself to the alternator, usually green. Those often corrode, break, or rub through and short. Inspect that wire from end to end and you may find your problem.
