I had similar problems like you.
I changed wires from batteries to alternator, and from batteries to starter. I put in a volt meter to replace old amp gage.
I also sent the alternator to auto electric shop to be checked out.
If your Atomic 4 has the plug/connector near the engine with all colored wires take/cut it apart and separate the wires for the starter wire and alternator wires and put new marine grade heavy gage wire from ignition switch to alternator and starter.
I changed those wires because there was a bit if resistence in the connector near the engine between the wires to and from igniton switch, alternator, and starter.
If you have any more questions regarding this feel free to email me.
Best to wire direct for these two wires and forget the plug.
