Years ago, I took mine to a automotive electric shop and they were able 
to fix it up right away.  They recognized it as a marine alternator by 
the screening protecting the brushes from igniting explosions, but the 
rest of the alternator is stock automotive.  (Old enough, now, that they 
might have to order parts.)  In my case, the diodes had gone.

If you need one while you wait, I've got a spare you could use.
