Hi Jake,

              As the alternator you changed the "brushes" on, has no internal regulator, whatever is causing the alternator to not charge the battery, could be the alternator, the external regulator, a fuse, or a fan belt, or maybe even wiring coming loose.

Like last time, first you've go to check everything visually, & then work your way through each item/component that is part of the "charging circuit".

If nothing is visually obvious, then, I'd take the alternator off again, & make sure the brushes aren't the culprit again.

Cheers Banjo
