dam... that sucks

good morning,
i believe that when the majority of the times that an alternator goes out it means the brushes are worn. with most this vintage alternators they put the brushes connected onto a small piece that gets screwed into the the alternator itself. i cant think of the name of the part butit also acts as a voltage regulator. i have a few extras laying around
its fairly simple, probably easier then removal/install of the alternator its self. if you cant find anyone or anywhere closer to get it from. let me know. it would still take a few days to get there though.
