Did you use a Bosch or other brand brush/regulator pack?
I recommend that BEFORE you replace the alternator, pull the pack and
check the wear on the brushes.....
One option is finding a local automotive electric shop and having it rebuilt.
My local shop will rebuild the alternator the same day you drop it off.
