alternator hook up


I got CD28 with volvo penta 2002 18hp. However, the alternator was disconnected and I dont know why. I would like to hook it up to see whether it works or not.

Im not electrician and Im not sure how to wire the alternator and regular. I was looking for information in books but its a bit hard to understand for me. But I have the basic idea.

The alternator is Paris-Rhone A13N1M with N-type regulator I believe. See attached photos.

Regulator - two brown wires for brushes, one disconnected. I guess this is positive and negative wire.

Red wire goes from regulator to alternator body and not sure where exactly.

Thats the last thing I need to solve before I set off for sailing here in Guatemala.

Thanks a lot, Tomas
