A late reply; I'm sure you have found the problem by now-
It sounds as if the battery (old and new) are not receiving sufficient charge.
Check the drive belt tension and add a cheap digital multimeter to your 'tools.' These can be had for well under $20 US and you can then check across the battery terminals to see if the charge voltage is between ~ 13-14.3 volts at an idle. In no case should it be lower than 13 volts with the engine running since the nominal battery voltage is 12.6 volts when fully charged.
You may have a separate regulator that is ill.

Its probably the alternator. It will need to be tested on the vehicle with the engine running and the light illuminated. Measure the battery voltage with the engine running. It should be at least 13.5 volts. If it is lower have the alternator tested at a shop with a charging system tester.

Are you sure that is a charging problem?Check if the carb injects gas at the moment the engine runs off,if there is spark on the ignition cables,as for no holding the charge,make this tip,disconnect the positive cable of the battery and get a multimeter,connect one terminal to the battery post and the other terminal cable,and disconnect every fuse and relay and possible part that consume a charge,one part at the time,when the reading on the multimeter goes down you did find the problem that its consuming the charge.
