I just picked a rebuilt alternator up from O-Reilly's for less than $40.00.1 year warranty. Few dollars more and they have one with lifetime warranty. This was a genuine Lucas for a 1974 MGB and included two belt pulley installed.
Took one day to get it after I ordered it. Had I placed the order before 11 AM I could have had it that afternoon after 4 PM.
They also bench check your existing one. They may even have one just like it in stock.

Sandy, Thanks do you have the part #. I ordered on from O-Reilly's also Lucas but doesn't come with pulley installed. Mine was $89 with $9 core charge.

Robert.
Sorry I did not keep it.
They did have numerous variations. You must get on good terms with the counterman as he can go through many pages on his computer to find what you need. If yours was Lucas it should have a lifetime warranty at that price. I paid only $39.00 plus tax and core charge for it.
When I ordered mine it took at least 15 minutes going though the screen to find one with the correct pulley installed.
