Sorry, you have fusible links instead of a mega fuse.

With the key off, on the back of the alternator make sure you have +12V on the black/orange wire and on the yellow/white wire. Report what you find.

Did you clean the terminals? Bad terminals can cause problems.

I changed the battery terminals so they are new as well... mega fuses on the firewall are all fine.

yes after 15 minutes of the car running i watch the digital clock dim down then everything else goes with it. The car will not turn back over after it dies, battery says 11.79volts. The orange and black wire on the ALT reads the same as the battery when the car is off.

Default update

update: Changed all the pigtails off of the alternator still no charge. All of the wires tested at correct voltage and where they are supposed to be. The black orange wire tests at correct voltage but only at +12v (Same as battery) when connected to the alternator. Also I've hooked up the alternator so it was not running on any of the electrical in the car, works fine. Starting tonight i will be ripping through the whole charging and starting systems trying to find anything. I also have some Ford level 10 engineers working on this problem considering i live in Detroit and know people. I will update on this problem and tell everyone exactly what is was that fixed this issue. That way in the future if anyone has this issue it will be resolved. Thank you all for your help but at this point its time to start at the front and work my way back until the issue is resolved.

Well, we'll see what the "level 10 engineers" have to say about it, but if you're getting voltage output with the alternator + cable disconnected you either have a weak/bad alternator, a loose or bad voltage sense wire for the voltage regulator, or some kind of massive draw on the electrical system when the alternator is connected.
