- Could be a bad battery with a dead cell or two causing the alternator to work too hard to try to recover it. Measure battery voltage with car not running at the terminal posts. Should be around 12- 12.5 VDC. Then turn on headlights with car not running and see what battery voltage is. Should drop a little but not more than a volt or two.

- Could be a faulty regulator on the alternator trying to overcharge the battery. Measure battery voltage with car running and nothing electrical turned on. Should be around 13.3 VDC.

To what "alternator fuse" are you referring? The 120A fusible link?

If the 120 amp fuse is getting blown, it is most likely a chafed (or nicked insulation) on the main wire from the alternator which is touching chassis ground on occasion. Or whoever installed an alternator did not get the main feed correctly centered and it may intermittently short to ground and take out the fuse.

Yes, intermittent SHORT on the alternator side of the fuse, maybe within the alternator itself. Alternators are not generally capable of putting out enough "juice" to blow this fuse.
