    I need to rebuild or replace the alternator/ generator on my 1964 GM PD4106. It has a 8V71 Detroit diesel. I cannot find a model number on the unit but the bus manual has model # 1117670. I can tell you it’s brush-less and oil feed and attaches directly to the blower. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank You
