    Did you replace the alternator in an effort to resolve a starting issue and why two? What do you mean by Blown? Damaged Electrically?

My fiance just changed the motor in his 89 chevy caprice to a 305. he put a new alternator in it and its not holding any charge. The care keeps shutting off when you drive or if we charge the battery hours...


Have you checked alternator output to see if it is getting from the alternator to the battery ? Could be a blown fuseable link or other wiring issue.
