I believe that model is an internal regulator.

The question is, what type of alternator did you have before,,,and how was it wired,,this will dictate how much, or how little foolin you will have to do with the wiring.

See the “12 Volt Doctor’s Alternator Book”
http://www.boatinghowto.com/download...orhandbook.pdf

Which Alternator do you have (page 122 or 124)?
