I am not sure what you mean by "amt pin", but you likely popped one of the large fusible links on the positive battery terminal.

That exactly what I did. Temporary fix to get down the road?

For the things that are out, it is almost definitely the 60A MAIN fuse on the positive battery terminal.

Temporary fix is tough. You could pop the clear cover over the link and solder it back together as a very temporary fix.

So I got the new fuseable link today. Put it in started the car. Got no blower fan airbag light on. Checked battery voltage while running. Volts dropping and alternator isn't kicking in. Checked 7.5 alt-s fuse. Fuse good. Checked 40 htr block fuse. Looks good. The amt slot is open with one pin in it. That the one I accidentally hit with ground when I was trying to aim my new headlights. Did I fry alternator? Seems to be the issue but want to make sure.

The things that are not working run off the other fusible link on the block (120A ALT). Take a peek to see if that guy popped when you replaced the block.

Thats the one beside the 60A main right? That one was intact. Took alternator out and having it tested today to see if I fried her. Is the voltage regulator integrated in alternator itself or seperate from it?

Ok. So I put alternator back in. Checked the voltage with out blower fan running and it charges. As soon as I turn knob to kick on blower fan voltage dropa which is normal. But fan doesn't work and alternator isn't kicking in to compensate for draw. Both fuses and fusable link good. All other accessories work normal. Just no blower motor and draw.

How far does the voltage drop with the fan on?

Not too far. 12.5 V range initially the over about 10 mins at idle voltage drops down to where it kills car. Blower doesn't blow air when switched on. Another thing I noticed is the battery light flickers a couple times upon start up the shuts off. Airbag light comes on at times upon start up and usually stays on when it does.
