1966 Ford F100 V8

We have a 1966 Ford F100 that has been in a barn for about 4 yrs and the reason they stopped using it was that it would start smoking like it was going to catch on fire. I was out there the other day and thought I would see if I could get it to turn over and first hooked up the battery charger to it. The alternator started getting hot and smoking. My assumption would be the alternator but does anyone have any good advice or experience with something similar.

Thanks for the input.

Check ALLLLLL of the wiring in the entire truck!

MICE and SQUIRRELS will eat wiring and expose wires, No more battery until you've traced everything and found no issues.

That way there will be no room for error or barn fire...
