[V8] Alternator

I replaced my regulator/brushes from a kit at Advance Auto or Auto Zone (some
generic auto parts store right here in downtown Worcester MA).  I think it
was about $20.  This was about 2 years ago (after shorting the reg out from a
lower-pan-less dip into a salty pot hole).  Been working fine ever
since--it's the original alternator with 200K on it (brushes replaced at
120K).  Quite easy job if I remember--do have to pull the alternator.

	Lost the alternator on the trip home to family gathering for
	Only had to be towed 100 miles back to the house.  I remember some
	about replacing the brushes and the voltage regulator?  Bosch rebuild
	centers?  The V8 archives are still MIA. 
	Would like to rebuild, any suggestions or ideas?
	Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving,
