I think I would ignore that connector for now.
just hook it up, and start the engine
that will be proof of the pudding as to whether those connections are even needed.
The light wire is not needed at all, so forget that one.
The "sense" wire, if it happens to be needed, is simple to hook up.
at first, just connect it to the Accessory block, if that makes it charge, and you will see the initial voltage at high RPMs go much higher than 14.3 because of the voltage drop between the battery and the Accessory terminal.
an easy fix, but for now, don't worry about it, just get the alternator installed and hook up ONLY the Red wire from the Post to the Battery. ( actually don't it go to the Fuse first? ) to prevent a failure in the alternator from burning up the wiring?
the fact that Alternator is advertised as ( one wire ) indicates that it does NOT need a sense wire for exciting the field. It has to have an internal Voltage Regulator feeding the internal field windings.
