Look up some of the links on the 3G alternator upgrade for size info and replace that wire with a heavier gauge unless it is a fusible link wire.
If it is a fusible link then it needs to remain the same size and you will need to identify why it burned up.
Any connections you make when splicing in a wire should be crimped and soldered to ensure you have a good connection. You put some soldering paste on the wires, crimp the connector, then solder it to complete the connection properly. Don't forget to slide some shrink tube on the wires before joining them together.
