Default charging system help

hey guys.
I just finished a plenum/timing chain replacement. everything runs great but the alternator is not charging. I read through old links here and saw its a common problem. I have made a mistake hooking the alt back up.
my problem is I didn't put a wire on the back I seem to have misplaced it.
Im missing the one that goes over the stud on the back of the alternator with a 8mm nut. can someone tell me where it traces back to? so I can start from there find/repair my mistake

thanks

found it. I used my Durango as a guide its the same engine. it was the wire feeding the PCM. I had it grounded to the PS pump. hooked to the alt and getting a good charge now.
the only problem left now is the cause of my air bag light but that's been there for a while now
