Regarding the regulator/brush/alternator replacement discussion:
It is rather cheap and easy to replace the regulator/brush assembly, but
often the regulator is just fine.  If it's not broke...

The brushes are available for about $4 each and only require desoldering
to remove the original and resoldering to install the original.  New
tension springs are also included in the package.  

I've done this repair several times.  Brushes seem to last about 80-100K
in normal operation.
