I wouldn't get too hung up on the exact part number for the
local alternator rebuild shop should have an equivalent. The ECS part
is a satisfactory replacement as is any with the same form factor
( i.e., it
fits) and regulates the voltage at 14 to 14.5 volts. You can replace
brushes if you are good at solder work.
For a replacement alternator, I would look for the factory rebuilt
or maybe Bob's suggestion on the ultranator. If you are a gambler,
com has a close out Beck Arnley unit cheap. It is probably a Bosch
