SOURCE: will not charge
What year is this mark vll?On the back of the alternator look for 12 volts on the large connector out put,with the engine off.If there is not 12 volts at that connector,run a new wire,as big ,or larger than the one on it,and go to the positive side of the battery,this will fix it.If there is 12 volts there,check it with the engine running,and see if 13.65 to 14.25 volts is thereat the large connector on the back of the alternator.Check the voltage regulator,see if there is 12 volts on one wire,with key off,and 12 volts on another one,only with key on,if there is,then replace the voltage regulator,it is a defect.

Fusible link should be available at any full service Auto Parts supply available on a roll which you purchase by the inch. Do not replace the fusible link with a piece of #10 stranded wire. Have you checked with your local GM garage for this link?
You say the fusible link is rated @ 20 amp's @ 12 V dc, I would suggest you could put a auto-resetting 20 amp @ 12 V dc circuit breaker in its place but not a wire.
Fusible link rarely "blows". I think you should find the cause before you go much further.
