You need to check and see if there is power going to your alt.I am not sure if there is a fuse for the charging system or not.Most of the vehicles I have seen it is a fuseable link made into the wire.Good luck.

Have the alternator retested at a place that rebuilds them. More than one occasion I have had a starter or alternator tested by auto parts stores and they show good there. but in fact they are not

I can't help you with your electrical problem, but I think I found a way to stop the boot from blowing off. I had the same problem with mine. It happened to me at least four times. I figured it was the hose flexing that gradually worked the clamp off. If the hose had a lip on it, I think it wouldn't be a problem. I put three metal straps that go from clamp to clamp to keep them from spreading apart. It hasn't blown off since I did it. I would post a pic but my truck is with Marc getting new heads & ARP studs. My only concern is that the straps my wear a hole in the boot. It sure beats doing roadside repairs once a month. It always seemed to happen when it was 105.

fixed it

Thanks for the help guys. It turned out that the intercooler pipe hit the alternator power connection when it blew off and caused a fusable link to burn up. We replace the lead to the alternator whith some 2 gage stereo wire and a 200A fuse. I talked to my friend yesterday and he was almost to Colorado everything working fine.
