Having a problem with burning the alternator up. Have already put 2 new ones on it. The parts house says that there is a short somewhere. I can't find it. Could you tell me where it might be?

Thanks
Jimmy Watson

Have you checked your regulator relay and the regulator itself?

It goes through the starter relay. It's located at the right fender apron in front of the shock tower.
