Default Alternator and bad earths??

Having to replace a faulty alternator, (aftermarket) and choosing to go with a Hitachi, all of my niggiling earth trouble seem to have gone. Does the alternator itself play any part with the earth?? I had previously tried new earth straps ect to no avail but change the alternator and problems seem solved?? Anybody have any ideas?

Possibly earth leakage internally, faulty diode set.

Yeah when chasing bad earth I didn't even give the alternator a second thought and blamed Mr Nissan for sh#t electrics
