And the next time you see someone post that you'll know what to say... and you'll understand why

Believe me you aren't the first to recommend that and you won't be the last..

Alternators get weak when there is grease or carbon tracking on the armeter brush path.
They fail completely when the brush hits bottom or a rectifier or regulator goes out.
