Question about 1989 Ford Tempo
Check with a test light, Power on the main post. Then unplug the three pin connector, you need to test for power to the regulator. I think the wire is green/red. It's not the white wire. The green/red wire is fed from the alt fuse in the underhood fuse box. The white wire is just a jumper wire to the one pin connector next to the three pin. The other wire goes to the light. If one of the pins in the Three pin connector( like i said i think its the green wire) and the main stud both show power, the take the alternator back and get another one.

look for a fusable link (fusible wire) between the alternator and battery .. check grounding strap from engine to chassis/battery neg

There are two bolts holding it on the mounting bracket. They are long 7 or 8 inch bolts. Remove these and disconnect the wires from it then pry it up between the alternator and the mount. It sounds more like a coil or plug wire problem to me as far as the now start when wet. But you definately have a battery drain issue.
