there is something called a "fuseable link" that blows before serious damage can occur...there will be a spark...fire...look for the burnt halves of this link...one must test the alternator to make sure it survived the mishap~

just realized this is not a "reversed jump" but backwards install...perhaps the fuseable link did not blow...you'd have to inspect....this is here to stop damage from occurring....everyone with an alternator has a fuse link~
