wire size to small? bad connection? hooked up incorrectly? grounding out somewhere? when troubleshooting, the first rule of thumb is to look for the obvious. then look again because it was probably so obvious you didn't see it the first time.. i hope this helps a little if any..

At this point, I would suspect that the diodes went away inside the alternator. They don't tolerate much abuse!
