I'd get a Bosch rebuilt- Avi Meron's rebuilds are poorly done, based on my
experience. His attitude and customer service are poor as well.

The Bosch rebuild that I got from a local foreign parts shop was far far
nicer in appearance and didn't use any strange parts and truly looked new.
The "ultranator" was spray-painted, didn't have the internals re-worked and
used a no-name voltage regulator of questionable origin.
