Alternator Questions

Getting rid of the generator, going to an internally regulated alternator. Want to retain the voltage reg for appearance and to not have the holes in the radiator surround. I believe I can jumper the outer two terminals together and the inner two terminals together. What becomes of terminal 1 and 2 on the alternator? I believe terminal 2 simply jumps to the battery terminal on the alternator but does terminal 1 become what was the "field" wire from the generator?? Also, any tricks to getting the front nut off the alternator? Tried using WD40 then allen wrech to hold the shaft and turn the nut but no success. Can I apply a little heat or is there a trick??

My Photobucket account is acting up at the moment so I can't post illustrative pictures. Check google for You Tube videos explaining the procedure as there are several to look at.
