Check the brushes:
1 for wear
2 if they are able to move freely.

replace them and clean everything!

It helped with me - made the brushes moving again and the alt. still is
working fine.

I am back after a several month hiatus (I just stopped getting list mail
one day, probably because of the excite@home issue), and I have been
having bad trouble with my 79 B.
I am going through an alternator once every several days.  I have a new
wiring harness, everything tight.  All the gauges work, all the lights
work.  The alternator, when installed, will charge fine at first.
Eventually, though, I lose charge and the car dies.  I had an old plug
on there that was corroded.  I replaced it. I've replaced the battery as
well, but that didn't help the alternator problem, just let me run on
battery a little longer.
If anyone has any ideas on what could be causing this, please throw out
suggestions, any suggestions, or ask for more information.  I need to
solve this problem ASAP, as this car is my daily driver.
TIA for all your help,
Mike Jose
