Oh and I also installed a new fuel pump as well before we left on vacation, no change.

Don't ground it out, it has to go to the positive side of the coil or it won't work. Double-verify it is the positive side, I had the same issue with an 82 or 84 Ramcharger, it will not work with it grounding and may actually cause damage. It took me a bit to get it straightened out because all the lean burn stuff, along with all the sensors, were part of this extra wiring for the second field wire, and it won't charge unless it is there. I say get a wiring diagram with the two field wiring because it may actually be the negative side of the coil, so double-check my response with the wiring diagram. The two field wire alternators were only used a couple years.

I think you can bolt in a 87 to 89 Mitsu alternator in there.  That's a 100 amp.  But, run a 2nd # 6 wire direct to the battery.  You'll have to convert to the electronic regulator.  Better off

Have you checked the intake for leaks?, a bad seal on the intake could be sucking air.

Gonna try the alternator first, then it's spraying carb cleaner in and around to see if I can find a leak.
