Dixon ZTR 429 Engine Replacement

I have replaced my original Briggs & Stratten 12 Hp engine with a new 13 1/2 HP Briggs & Stratton. Everything fit nicely except the alternator wiring. The old engine had one hot and a ground. The new engine has a six connector plug that is only using three wires. Two go into the top part of the engine and the third runs into the side of the engine.

How do I connect this new alternator to my tractor's wiring?

The one going into the side of the engine....does it go through the air shroud over the cylinder? If so, it is the kill wire for the ignition (black wire). The other two wires are the alternator wires. The one with the diode in it (red wire) is the one that charges the battery. It should connect to the same post that the battery cable connects to on the solenoid. The other wire powers lights when the engine is running and should be white.
