    You should have eerything done before you connect it. Have the negative battery ground done, the alt to battery, and the alt ground all upgraded. Then connect the 2 grouns first, then the + battery terminal. What guage wire are you using to do this? And what amp fuse on the battery to alt are you using?

    A bit of electrical arking is normal, but when stuff starts to melt that means that the positive has a direct line to the negative somewhere.
    You will need to inspect all your wires and find the short.
