Anyone know potential causes?

Weird black substance it's almost like a solid black substance. Its all over my alternator and now my steering is completely locked.

Road tar from roadworks? This would probably be lumpy coating.

Oil leak with hot oil spraying that can harden over time? This would be smooth unless dust has stuck to it when sticky.
