You can also just remove the old regulator and take a look at the carbon brushes, since that is were the wear is. My local True Value Hardware sells carbon brushes for $5 to $10.00.

Or if you live in a urban area, you may be able to locate a starter alternator repair shop. I had the alternator for my 911 Porsche rebuilt for 90.
