Default Alternator problems on 88 dodge ram 318

Hey as some of you know i bought an 88 dodge truck that sat for 7 years and i when i drove it home i tried to restart it and the battery was dead so i charged it and got it started to move it around the yard. So i know the alternator isnt working but it was good before it was in the accident and parked. It was seized when i bought it but i got it unseized and it wont work. I was told by a friend to tap on it why the engine was running to free up the brushes but it didnt work. But on the inner fender on the drivers side there are some electrical boxes that arent plugged in and i am wondering if that may be the problem or is there something wrong with the alternator inside. I tried to find a wiring diagram for the truck but i cant find anything so if anybody can find one for me that would be great to. Thanks
