loosen the mounting bolts on the alternator, remove the old belt, replace with the new belt, slightly tighten the top mounting bolt, pull the alternator up until the belt is tight or if there is an adjustment bolt, crank down until tight (shouldn't bow more than 1"), and tigten other hardware.

Generally if charge light is on, alternator has a bad diode in it. This lets the charged battery lose its power by flowing in the reverse direction. It sounds as the alt., is either not connected right or is swtill bad

The battery has seen better days wear gloves and eye protection in dealing with it. The alternator should be checked out. Get a NEW battery and put a voltmeter on the terminals and start the car. Voltage should be between 13.5 to 14.5 w all accessories on. Anything over this means the voltage regulator in the alternator is shot. Remember you can't test the alternator with the old battery ITS DANGEROUS. Batteries can short out especially if they are overcharged. You probably have a sulfated battery which means that its ability to accept and give a charge is destroyed . Therefore the battery is useless.
