Update for part numbers and pics.
(I have the unfortunate task of doing this once the connector comes in on Wednesday)
I will take some pics, and update the first post since there's nothing up there anymore.

At any rate:
Ford Part: 1U2Z-14S411-TA
Motorcraft Part: WPT-118
^^^That (MC number) is most likely what the Ford Dealer will find the part number listed as now in the computer.

And yes...I put in a new alternator, and it was in fact that little 3 wire connector.
Visually it looks perfect, but if I pull it out about 1/2 way and wiggle it around just right, I can finally see 14.5 volts versus 12.8 on the volt meter.
