Re: Dear lord 2 new alternators toast.
If using an internal regulated alternator, 10SI or an 12SI, the external regulator comes out of the circuit.
Unplug the external reg and on the external plug you just unplugged, connect/jumper the two outside terminals to each other and jumper the two inside terminals of the ext reg plug.
At the alternator, the large ring terminal goes to the BAT stud, and you can buy an adapter to plug in the existing 10DN connector, looks like this 'll', to the internal reg alt, 10SI or 12SI looks like this '--'.
Now, with the new alt running, if it is working, the case should feel warm to the touch. If it is hot, some circuit elsewhere is drawing alot of power/current. With a temp gun, case temp should not be over 130°F.
