Re: Noisy Alternator

Check your battery first? If there is a dead cell it can over charge...
Get it checked it may have a warn or dry bearing, check brush's too...

Some of the latter model AU's 6's had issues with beaing / armiture where brush's contact being out of parallel and wear quick, giving uneven charging etc...
Fitting new brush's is temp fix...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!
