Doc here,

Check your wires going to the primary and secondary ignition on the coil..major offender is the wire from the secondary shorted to or touching the main battery cable at the starter solenoid.

If your running an aftermarket ignition..you may need to install a diode on the alternator main power line to cure the problem. you can test it by starting the car up with the alternator unhooked..if it shuts off, you need the diode.
