    Need Advice- What's the best alternators?

    I need to know what alternators are the best.
    I have;
    1987 Merc TRS.
    Exsisting alternators;
    Port - Motorola (toast)
    Starboard - Mando (works kinda)

    The local auto electric shop doesn't like Mando or Motorola.
    He said $150 to rebuild Motorola and he'd have to sell me a new Mando for $190.
    I don't like Mando's either and I don't want to buy a new one.
    I would like to buy 2 new matching alternators. Question is what to buy?
    He recommended converting to Delco Remy one wire. I don't know how difficult this convertion would be and he said the alternators would be rebuilt, not new.

    Any recommendations?
