Voltmeter light Alternator

Our local FLAPS, "Murrays" had it for $25, but it was special order,
and it took a day to get in. 

The alternator had to come out.....stuff is way to tight in there,
and I could not get enough leverage on the two screws
holding the brush holder in place, rather than ruin it, I bit the
bullet and removed the whole alternator.

On the positive side, got to clean the sliprings up, and sand the
terminals a bit.

Now, getting the alternator back in was a surprising challenge,
it was hard to locate the holes so that the top bolt went through.

good luck
