"Actually this set up might be the best of both worlds.
The resistor will provide protection in case the battery to alternator wire becomes an open circuit which would cause the alternator output to all be on the #1 terminal circuit. The diode would provide a low resistance path to allow for a lower start up speed for the alternator".
I am not following this: How are you connecting the diode and the resistor?
My understanding would be - if connected in series the diode cannot provide a low resistance path and if connected in parallel the resistor cannot limit current.
