Alternator Wire?

I've been pressed for time so I hired a mechanic friend of a mechanic friend to pull the bad engine, he didn't label anything, then moved a few days later. So... I've been playing "where does this nut, bolt and wire go" as I put the JDM replacement motor in the engine bay. I'm on the home stretch but I'm a little stumped with one of the wires that is part of the bundle that comes from by the fuse box on the pass. side. There are four wire connections: One small ground wire to Alt, one large ground wire to Alt, one large plug into the Alt, and the last one is a small oval shaped electrical connector that clips into something but can't figure out what. Any ideas?

The alternator has one ground that is wrapped into the loom. Theres the plug that goes into the socket (the plug contains two wires (white and a yellow red)). Then theres the cable that goes directly to the alternator power bolt (another white but larger gauge). I'm describing this as a 92 b13. Do you have ABS?

You're exactly right, that wire connector snaps into a plug on the top of the A/C compressor. Thanks.
