Alternators fail slowly - little warning that it is doing so ..
As an experiment, try giving the alt. a sharp rap (applies to motors in general), it may then return to life for a short time .. I'd love to see automobiles with sufficient gages (oil pressure and battery condition(volts)) .

Check to see what the battery voltage is at 2000 rpm. Make sure battery is fully charged and is at or above 12.5 volts with the ignition off.

Thank you all for your help!

I didn't have the green wire attached to the starter. Guess I went too quick and overlooked it.
