1969 Camaro Alternator Confusion
I need some help.
So over the past couple weeks I have had issues starting the engine, the battery would all ways seem to be dead so I would put the automatically controlled charger on it at night and it would start in the morning, until a couple days ago when I went out removed the battery charger and got in the car, turned the key and the battery exploded! What a mess, rinsed everything down with water powered it with baking soda and went and bought a new battery.
I initially put the battery and the starter would not turn, so I pulled the starter and replaced it (had lifetime warranty so it was free) the guy at the auto parts store said the start had a direct short which is what I saw when I metered it out.
New start in still no starter activity. Pulled the wiring plug on the alternator and bingo the start turns. So I am thinking that the alternator got fried in the battery explosion.
So I start looking for a new alternator, the one that was in the car when I bought it was a Delco-Remy 1100588 which has been replaced with part number 20039. My confusion is I have a external regulator (solid state) that I installed last fall, but the description of the 20039 states that this alternator has an internal regulator.

So is this the wrong alternator altogether and if so what should I be buying? Part number???
