What kind of fuse are you using, and is it in the old OEM fuse clip holder?

That looks not so much like sixty as the point where the voltage regulator is supposed to reduce the current to the  field coil in the alternator. I reckon that when the the contact moves, it shorts the supply down to earth. Look for a wiring fault around there.
