There is a big wire attached to the alternator. There is probably a fuse-able link in that wire that may be burnt out. Check and see if there is 12 DCV on that wire at the alternator.

If alt is a rebuild, Once I bought a rebuilt unit and still no charging to battery after checking everything else I took it back, they gave me another and hooked it up it worked fine. After you check it out on your end if still a no go, swap it out for another.
