ya Justin this connection was mad all right...
Considering this was Ancor wire it fried the last 2.5 inches and look at the shielding!
That musta been one hot / jumping spark/connection if ya know what I mean..
Tomorrow if I get a chance, I will dissect the fuse ended part and see what that looks like!
I am back with new wire to 14.3 volts at battery at above idle now with light & A/C on etc.
