I had thought by cleaning up the altinator terminals the altinator would be ok but it seems to have gone good for a while but is now causing issues again. after i cleaned the turminals i got the propper vaultage out of the altinator however now all i get from it is between 2v and 4v. the turminals are ok. i suspect it is faulty, are they fixable or are they best just to replace. i have tried removing turminal and testing from the terminal to the earth and get only what is above

its quite likely just brushes - take it out the car, go to an auto electrician, they should be able to put new brushes in for about 20 bux. Did mine about a year ago, from removing it, taking it down to the sparky's, bolting it back in took less than an hour.
