Check to see if one of the fusible links at the starter relay have burnt up or not making contact. Check the things in red or arrows in pic.

WHAT ABOUT FUSIBLE LINKS?

CHECK YOUR CONNECTIONS SOME MAY NOT BE MAKING GOOD CONTACT

LASTLY, EVEN A NEW PART CAN BE BAD

IS IT POSSIBLE TO CHECK THE ALTERNATOR'S VOLTAGE AT THE UNIT, NOT AT THE BATTERY? THIS MAY CONFIRM THAT IS DOES PRODUCE VOLTAGE (SO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO REMOVE IT FOR AN AUTO PARTS STORE TEST)

KEEP US INFORMED, I MAY BE ABLE TO GET YOU A WIRING DIAGRAM OF THE SYSTEM. IT MAY SHOW OTHER COMPONENTS TO CHECK
