I'm guessing you're talking about that diesel scout.  If it's got power
brakes and thus the vacuum then you really just have to get that one rebuilt
(instead of getting a new one).  If it doesn't have power brakes and is just
a normal alt it may be cheaper.

If you're willing to use them again the place in fayetteville does

When mine was acting up it'd show a discharge until higher rpms when it'd
show a higher charge.  Don't have any experience with what you're talking
about so can't say for certain by any means that you need a new alt though!
