Is there any possibility that you shorted the alternators' output terminal too ground when you installed it? If you are sure that was ok, then the alternator may have an internal short in it. You could use an ohmmeter and check the output terminal to ground and see if that is shorted.
The small field wire to the alternator should have 12 volts on it when the key is turned to the on position and motor not running. Since you are getting a charge light it means the field line to the alternator should be ok.
