How is the alternator wired? You mentioned it was "wired directly to the battery (I just unplug it when its off so it wont burn up the alternator)", but this is unclear to me- the alternator will not burn up if it's wired as it's supposed to be.

do you have a fuel regulator for your holley blue pump? what carb are you running? is it a possibility that with no alt your battery power is low and your holley blue pump is not running at optimal pressure so as not to leak passed your needle/seat, and when hooking up the alt you get full 13+ volts making the blue pump full pressure leaking passed your needle/seats flooding the carb and wet fouling the plugs?to check quickly unhook the alt let it run for a minute then physically feel the pump with your hand and see how hot it is, or shut engine off after alt has been hooked up and look down the throat of the carb looking for raw fuel dripping into the intake.. hope i could help
