That flat sided cover doesn't look quite right. I don't remember a flat side being on the alternator cover at all.

Let me look at my stash of alternator covers after work and get back to you.

So a nice package arrived today from Mr Bowlsby....
Btw - the replacement alternator has a large plastic type washer instead of a metal one under the bolt for the wires...

I recently had this problem with a rebuilt alternator.
It was supplied on a engine from a rebuilder here.
The problem was revealed immediately when the battery was connected.
Luckily....because the battery contact was only momentary the harness and the alternator were not damaged, but this was not known before two hours were spent removing, repairing and reinstalling the alternator.
The lesson here is this.
Never ignore evidence of a 'voltage draw' when connecting a battery.
Make sure all consumers are OFF
Find the draw or the short before continuing.

Gasket doesn’t prevent shorting, only seals for air to be directed away from the alternator, the long screws still provide a path to ground.
