You have two get the correct alternater, it is presently running at full charge all the time and not regulating. If you continue to drive it this way, it will burn out more things, including the battery. To warn you, this is what causes batteries to explode, trust me, you don't want this to happen. It is possible you could get someone to wire up the alternater your using now but they will need some experience and a good diagram.
