The kit should have a diagram with it. So is it a one wire or a 3 wire makes a difference. 1 wire has only one wire and it goes to the amp gauge. 3 wire has 3 wires and the charge wire goes to the amp gauge and the #2 wire on the plug goes to the charge stud on the alternator and the #1 wire goes to the ignition switch the side that is hot when turned on but you are likely to need a diode or light bulb in line or it will not shut off due to alternator back feed

Wring a tractor like yours is easy and I can almost do it in my sleep but I at one time was an Electronics tec. when I was In the navy and have worked with electronics' a lot. If you search the archives Bob has posted pictures of the wiring set up that should cover what your looking for
