    Have you checked your battery cables?

    Does yours have an external regulator? When you say it isnt charging all the time do you mean that when its running you notice that your voltage gauge is going up and down in voltage. Or that it does dead over night or if it sits? I would start with wiring first and make sure that your belt isnt slipping a lot. Bring your alternator to autozone and they can bench test it for you there for free and make sure its not defective. Make sure your battery is good too.

    Make sure you have a good ground and put a voltmeter on your battery when its charging and see if its a relitively stabil and move your cables around at the same time and see if it suddenly drops when your moving certain cables.
