You're gonna have to raise the ante a bit, Edelweiss. I'm cheap...but I'm not THAT cheap!

I assume you've checked the connections. If the alternator's size and style has served you well, a remove-rebuild-reinstall may be a simple and cost-effective solution. Alternator rebuild shops are a dime-a-dozen in metropolitan areas like yours.

I installed a Balmar b/c a friend made me an offer on it I couldn't refuse...about 50% of retail for one that was only used a year or so. If I had to pay retail, I probably wouldn't have done it. My port alternator looks original, but at 39 years, I kinda doubt it is.
