Cool 84 Ford Bronco 2 Not Charging

I have a 1984 Ford Bronco 2 and have replaced the alternator, voltage regulator and the battery. I have checked to make sure it is wired correctly and it is, but at the back of the alternator I have 26 volt output and where the power wire connects to the power wire connect to the solenoid I have whatever the battery is putting out. I need help, this is my son's truck and right now he is driving my Super Duty and I want him out of it.

Take all the grounds apart and sand them metal to metal. Check the fusable links are you getting power from the batt to the alternator with the key off (large wire). There are actually ony two wires working from the alternator one goes to the battery and the other goes to the regulator. If you have a idiot light the third wire wht/blk goes to the regulator. It sounds like the link is blown between the battery and the alternator. A quick check for the charging system fully charge the battery. check the battery voltage say 12.8 volts start it and run it around 1500 rpm and check the batt volts it should be no higher than 2 volts over battery voltage no higher than 14.8 volts then turn the lights on high and heater on high and at 2000 rpm the batt voltage should be no lower than .5 volts over battery voltage or no lower than 13.3 volts. If it passes those two tests load/noload it is working correct.
