I have a 1984 Ford F 250 that I changed the alternater and battery in. Its not holding a charge at all and its back firing as well. any ideas what could be wrong?

the only three things i can think of is youve either got a bad alternator ( yes if its a remanufactured one its possible) your battery is wasted (replace), or the wiring isnt correct and the alternator isnt providing to the battery.

Not charging replaced alternater still wont charge

Be sure to charge the battery, otherwise you might smoke the new alternator(not made to charge a dead batt.). Have the batt. load tested. Check batt. cable ends for corrosion.

Battery draining when off. We have recharged battery 3 times. Have tested the battery it is good. After the recharge it is dead.

It is quite likely to be a faulty diode within your alternator. This can easily be checked by disconnecting your alternator, then leaving the car stood overnight with a freshley charged battery.
If the battery holds its charge, replace the alternator.

My Ford Taurus 1994 only clicks when trying to even when jump sta

You need to see if the battery is holding 11 volts or more while trying to crank it over. If it is, then you need to see if the same is getting to the starter motor. If the voltage looks good at the starter, the starter is bad.
At the starter you will have a larger wire from the battery, that always has positive voltage, and a smaller wire that has positive voltage only while trying to start it.
