    I would still suspect a back feed rather than the HEI. Is the one wire alternator connected directly to the battery or to an ignition switch fed source?
    What happens if you disconnect the v belt and the alternator wire?
    I know the three wire alternators have a back feed issue but have not experienced it with a one wire.

    How do you test the hei ?

    The plug that goes to the cap. 1 wire should be your 12V +. Make sure it goes dead when engine turned off. You may have to extend wires from plug to cap using a couple of wires with crimp connectors so you can connect a meter.
