I'd guess the regulator has failed, and that it's running WFO.... which fries the stator (fixed part of alternator)..... if there are any corroded contacts in any of the connectors anywhere in the path, they add resistance which makes additional heat.
Best answer is to use that Multimeter we keep mentioning, and solve the problem based on facts instead of guesses. Honest, it's less expensive that way.

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
