Technician A is correct. A fusable link has no effect on the charging rate of the battery.

SOURCE: No charge to battery
the starting /charging system is interrelated ....check amp draw of starter...be sure ALL grounds on engine alternator starter battery are clean and tight...also you could have a parasitic electrical leak...disconn neg side to battery and put test light in line..should be faint light for radio and computer..nothing more..if it burns bright you have something drawing power when system is off..pull fuses one at a time to discover where ....good luck

The wiring burning up at the altenator most likely caused the diode inside the altenator to short out. I would just replace the altenator now.

clean battery terminals ,bring battery to be tested after charging, after reinstalling battery run car and test alternator output it should be a minimum of 13-14volts if it is under 13 replace alternator , use a voltmeter set on 12 volt 10 amp dc to check the wire to check is located on the back of the alternator covered with a rubber grommet of course hold negative wirw on volt meter to ground and touch red wire to big terminal on back of alternator while car is running should have 14 volts or at least 13 volts

No fusible link, make sure the wires connected to the alternator are making good contact. If you installed a rebuilt alternator, it could be defective. Also check the voltage regulator
