What is the alternator output? Need to know the voltage and the max amperage output. Will also need to know the results of a load test on the charging system.

I am Getting 120 amps of voltage from alternator. But I am also getting Ignition feed through bolth field untill i disconnecet the altnator. then the computor sends a ground. I can ground the altanator manuley to charge but the truck wont do it itself
