I don't know why I thought you needed a Motorola to Bosch conversion diagram. Embarassed
10 guage Red wire goes to B + stud. 18 guage Blue goes to D+ male spade on alternator. Some but not all had a brown wire 18 guage attached to the alternator case for a ground.

iv got a stand for my alternator and i hook up the D+ to the battery and the B+ to a blue wire im guessing for the warning light and if i hook the battery up it smokes and stuff i have no idea whats going on

I think that is your problem. While both terminals are fed 12 volts they perform different functions. B+ is hot all the time. D+ supplies 12 volts to the regulator via the alt. light to turn on the regulator. Reg supplies a ground and the light lights up. When the alternator energizes it supplies 12 volts to the alt eliminating its ground turning off the light. The ground is not that important as the ground to the engine through the tranaxle ground strap is larger. My rail charges without a small ground wire to the alternator.

Don't hold back. No spark?, no crank?, no fuel?

Put it in gear and look for the spinning axle.
