Check the voltage regulator.
It screws into (2 screws) the back of the alternator and the contacts may be worn down so that they are no longer making the battery charging circuit when the battery needs charging. My original Bosch alternator in my 78 300D lasted over 260K and went through at least 4 voltage regulators. Its a $40 Bosch part. I use to
keep an extra one in the car.
Hope this is of help.
