Just to clarify, the alternator that you have now is working and not defective but the connector on the alternator will not stay on any longer?
If this is the case then I would just replace the connector as I suspect taking it on and off so much has caused the lock to fail.
I am attaching the info on what is called a connector kit. This just the connector and wiring pigtails so that you can cut the old connector off and solder the wires back together so that you don't have to replace the entire harness.
I highlighted the part number and if you just do a Google search then you will find this connector. I attached a picture of this as well.
Please let us know if you have questions. Thanks
