Won't be buying much more for Ironheads any more. US post sucks big dicks.
With all the deal on airplane travel, might be cheaper to come get it. LOL

if it has the clutch alternator, then the two wires of the same color connect to the pmg pigtail and it does not matter which is which, the other to the battery.
you cannot use a dc reg with an ac reg system. although with engineering it can be done but why go there.
