Default Converting OBD2 Alternator to OBD1

Is there any way to convert the OBD2 integra alternator plug to work with the OBD 1 integra plug without cutting or splicing it? Can I open the alternator and modify the plug to use the OBD1 circular plug instead of the OBD2 rectangular harness plug? What number on the diagram do i change? I remember reading a post here on this forum regarding converting an OBD2 alternator to an OBD1 alternator

Yes you can, just simply swap the regulators around along with the covers.

can this be done with a obd2 d series alternator. I have a obd1 alt on my b16a and im converting my harness over to a ex harness obd2. so can i take the internals or plug out of the obd2 d series alt. and put it in my obd1 case. I need to use the plug style off the d series alt.
