Question about Garden
Alternator under the flywheel tests good. Wiring harness checks out ok. I found a burned out red wire coming off the alternator, looks like it may have had a fuselink or maybe a diode. What regulates the voltage to the battery?

turn your vehicle on, disconnect the battery, both terminals(while truck is still on) if it dies on you, then either the alternator is bad or wiring is wrong. if it stays on, then you may have a bad battery or voltage regulator. Check the voltage on the battery before you turn it on(should be from 11.5v-12v), when you turn it on if the alternator if working properly you should have around 13v-14v.

Testimonial: "This was helpful, but I did not post that I had already performed this check."
the voltage regulator is normally built in to the alternator, so i would have expected this to have cured the problem.
it appears to me that something else is causing the regulator to continually blow and this in turn is overcharging the battery, causing it to fail.
the only thing i can think of to check is the earth leads going from the battery to the engine and the body of the car. make sure they are tight and fixed to clean rust free metal.
i would then get the system checked by a specialist auto electrician as it will save you money in the long run
