My "early car", 14482 is equipped with the Delco.  The Lucas unit is installed in the later car, 19336.  Also, 19336 doesn't have a wiring plug, just 3 separate spade connectors.  And the clearance is tight at the back of the alternator, as you say, and access is tricky. 

I'm hoping some electrical advisor can help with the questions in my previous post.  'Til then I'm kind of stuck.  Now I wonder if it's possible that the exciter circuit will bring 12v to the alternator if all the wires are connected to the alternator and the engine is started.  I'll try that next.
