Poorboy wiring question

I have re-installed a Poorboy alternator on my GL 1200, but I'm unsure of which of the three tangs on the alternator the "exciter" wire goes to. Please see pic. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Dennis and Ken:
Many thanks. When it flickered, I must have touched the front cover to the bike. Thomas Edison, I ain't.

O-ring question

On the parts fiche below (85 GL 1200A) part #30 is an o-ring that looks like it goes in the oil pump. Should that be changed when you replace the water pump? Thanks.

Yes, I cleaned off all the corrosion with a wire brush, then steel wool, and then used dielectric grease. Never thought to use the baking soda solution, but I will next time.

On the 200mA scale the amp reading is .02.

Does that seem normal?

Do you think that would drain a fully charged battery over, say, 4-5 months?
