Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

Sure you can hardwire the alternator that long as there's a voltage regulator in between. Sounds like your distributor ignition pickup is toast. It's in the distributor below the rotor. It's held in by two screws that screw in through the distributor body. Thirty bucks, give or take. It starts konking out, but will restart rather quickly. The time interval gets longer til eventually it won't start at all.
