    You seemed to cover pretty much everything, except, replacing battery cables. I would replace the alt to battery cable, battery to chassis & chassis to block wires to be safe. It sounds like you might have a poor contact point that causing your problems. Make sure you clean the contact point at all location REALLY good, I also use that battery terminal grease, even on the chassis locations to help with corrosion/rust.

    Also, theirs no problems with adding additional ground point like firewall to chassis to help with ground loops and things like that. Being that it's a '91 you could have some pretty worn and aged wiring.

    that's funny, I didn't see how old your post was until after I posted myself...I saw it come up as "similar" post to something else I was posting on....
