Great you have a schematic. I don't have one in front of me so if I'm a little off, refer back to your schematic. I'll use an 84 Olds as an example 'cause I can do that off of the top of my head. The fusible links aren't your problem. If you don't have about 14.5 volts on the alternator stud, the alternator isn't putting out. If this alternator has two wires in the alternator connector, one wire (red) does go back to the alternator stud. The other wire (black) goes back to an idiot light. I'm guessing you have an idiot light car. The other side of the idiot light comes off a fuse. On my sample Olds this is a pink/black wire. Guessing this fuse is popped. Olds calls it the "gage" fuse.
If you pull the alternator connector, turn the key to ON, and measure the black wire to ground, suspect that you will not see 12 volts to ground.
Without this 12 volts, from the ignition switch, the alternator shuts off.
