First off, with the battery light, I think you did everything correct. It sounds like the altenator you installed is not turning off the battery light. According to the diagram, power is supplied to the charge light from the hot bus thru the ignition switch. It gets its ground thru the Altenator. When the altenator produces power, the internal logic removes the ground for the charge light indicating the system is charging normally. I would have the altenator and battery tested at your local parts store, and if they check normal, replace the altenaor with your warrenty.
On a side note, I woudl check all of the connections including the grounds for your battery, and engine ground for corrosion and tightness. Some times when things are not grounded properly, weird symptoms do occur.
Looks like the filter should be located near the tank on the side of the aft support beam.
