I would check out your voltage regulator on the back of the Alt. first. A lot of the time that's what has failed on these units. The screws can be a Pain sometimes so hit it w/ some penitrating lubricant first (I find PB blaster works best..).

If it's Really worn out (brushes should be about over a 1/2 long when new) get the Bosch unit, the KAE's are just cheap stop gap fixes IMHO.
