Default delco remy alternator arching and glowing

As I'm getting everything working on the 1970 Cadillac Superior, just tonight the first post on the top of the alternator started glowing out of nowhere. I shut the car off and disconnected it and started the car back up. The other two began to slowly get hot also. When I disconnected all three the car batteries will not charge from the alternator. I was under the belief that these were all AC outputs to go to an inverter or something like that. That is originally what was hooked up to it but I disconnected that. Any idea why it would start barking and glowing out of nowhere? It's a delco remy 40dn 1117140.
