Have just replaced an alternator (model 4110). The regulator is a Lifeline Nextstep.

The old alternator had a cable to which the field wire was connected (red cable in photo) but the new one doesn't.

Use the old alternator as a guide.

"use the old alternator as a guide"?? that's the problem, they're different. As I stated, the new alternator doesn't have the cable for the field connection
