I just bought a 1977 FJ-40. I need to replace the alternator. The PO removed the toyota plug that plugs into the alternator and just has two terminals . The plug on the back of the alternator had three terminals one vertical and one horizontal. Which ones do I use?

Don't have a manual in front of me - but wanted to jump in with a slight hi-jack:

Is it true that the Mopar alternator for a 318 will fit our 2F mounts?

i have the same problem, a wire came out of the back of the clip so i cut it off and ran some new terminas, i'm not looking at it but i believe that you use the top horizontal, and the one vertical.

top left horizontal - white with green stripe (F)
right vertical by clip - white with black stripe (E)
bottom left horizontal - no connect (N)
