Alternator going bad?

I believe your alternator windings are gone. I had  similar experience,
a year after replacing the brushes/regulator, the alternator failed
on a day in pouring rain, I suspect the extra moisture had something
to do with providing the final straw.

Swapping another regulator did not fix it....swapping in a complete rebuild
The local FLAPS  had a Bosch type for $140 delivered to the local store the
next day,
it was the cheapest-quickest alternative, and this fixed the problem.
