Re: alt. wiring?
As Dave suggests, I'd clean the connections, especially those at the horn relay buss bar and at the junction block next to the battery and on the alt BAT terminal.
Make sure all grounds are good connection, make sure the alt case and rad support/VR chassis have less than 1 ohm of resistance between them. You do say it does 'charge' for a few seconds, does voltmeter across battery posts read the same, 14 volts or more, then battery voltage? Reads like a connection has some corrosion built up, corrosion heats up, voltage drops like a rock.
If you have a '67 & '69, the brown wire on the VR plug goes to the GEN light in the dash.
In '68, the same wire is Pink from VR to firewall, then brown, and ends up at the GEN light.
Your console ammeter is connected between the horn relay buss bar(?) and junction block next tot he battery - actual ammeter is a millivolt meter in reality meaning its measuring the amount of voltage loss for the length of wire.
