    Diagram looks correct. I had posted copies of several different Econoline wiring diagrams on the old forum, not sure what catergory though. Here's a copy of the 67 wiring diagram for the alternator. Some of it has been cut off when posted. If you need better copies I can email all 6 pages to you directly.

    If the battery went stone dead, the Starter relay could be a problem. You need to remove the wires from the terminal that the battery goes onto and start by touching the battery cable to that terminal. If it does not spark, put it on and touch the other wires to it to see if anything sparks which would indicate a short or problem.
