Check your connection. Make sure they are clean and tight. Especially your ground. Check it at the battery, alternator, motor, and frame. When you replaced that alternator, there was the heavy wire that connects to the bottom of the alternator via a nut. This connection has a rubber boot to protect it from shorting out because there's very little room around it when it's mounted in place. Check that this connection/wire isn't shorting out in that area.
