I change my original motor alternator an INDMAR vortec 5.7 ltrs. PREDATOR TBI 310 HP mounted on a 22.5 Maristar OF MASTERCRAFT VRS.

I have the problem that is heated to a few minutes of starting the engine, smoke begins to be taking, I already change the cable goes to the battery (orange) with a new 8-gauge wire, the exciter (purple) and earth (black ), the new alternator is a VALUE brand, sold for automotive use. I repaired the original one that I remove, and again installed it,  temperature decrease, which is why I worry because begins to smell of overheated cable?
