Hi, My name is Jay

On the start relay you should have three terminals. The small terminal should only have the small start signal wire. The side that large cable that runs down to starter should be only wire on that side of solenoid. This is large black cable. For the other side you should have all fuse link wires and large positive red cable from battery connected. If you replaced alternator and voltage regulator then it should start charging. Let me know? Here is wire diagram for this vehicle.
