Alternator wiring 2.5td to 200Tdi

I replaced my 2.5td with a Discovery 200Tdi. On the 2.5Td there were 2 larger brown wires and one small wire.

On the 200tdi the alternative has one large post, one small post and one wire with a spade connector.

How do I connect the old wiring to the Discovery alternator.

I did the same conversion awhile ago but just changed the alternator so happen to have a photo. The spade connector is for a tach I believe.

The two large wires go to the large post and the small wire to the small post. They should be labeled. If you want to be certain, look for labels and post a clear photo.
