86 alternator problem

We need some help here. My son is the proud owner of a 1986 CJ as of Friday. Today, the alternator went. After replacing the alternator, he was hooking up the negative cable on the battery and fried some wires. Any clue what could have happened? Is there any place that will have skematics so that when he rewires this won't happen again. He'll be signing on as Matt. Please give him all the help he needs. The guys on the YJ board were great when I got my Cherokee and were a valuable resource.

BY FAR the best wiring diagrams are in the HAYNES repair manual, available in auto parts stores. The Jeep CJ manual by HAYNES covers his model.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]
