If all connections are good check the fuseable link in the main wire from alternator to battery. Here is a picture of my 85. Yours should be similar.

Trace the wire shown above back to the battery. The link should be within about 12 inches of the battery. Look at base of ruler in this picture and you can see mine.

Also check the output voltage on the alternator. It should be around 14.5 volts. Test it at battery and right at alternator. If not showing it at battery but it is showing right at alternator check all battery connections, fuseable link and the negative battery connections on the frame and motor.

did you check the belts? if they aren't tight, the alternator won't turn fast enough to build up a charge in the battery or power the car.
