starter- cable from battery
alternator- run wire from battery terminal on alternator to a positive connection. Usually run this wire to positive side on starter.
Voltage regulator is inside most alternators so you dont have to hook it up
do you not have instructions on the MSD box? If not got to msd web and ask for install instructions. Or go to ask.com , or ehow.com
