Can't say for the 560 (haven't looked), but the 4.5 alternator has a wire that terminates in a black cube also. That cube is bolted to the center of the backside of the alternator (if that makes sense). No idea what it is, I just know I had to attach it when I did the alternator swap earlier this year
