The diode pack on every alternator I have seen gets replaced from inside and may require a soldering iron.
If I were you I would see if they sell a kit. You may have also toasted the regulator. The kit will usually include rectifier assy, regulator, bearings and brushes.

Those diodes, like all electronics actually run on smoke, once you let the smoke out of them they wont work anymore
