Hi Everyone,

My 93 has what I suspect is an alternator whine. It follows the engine RPM, it isn't static like from the plugs, it is just a whine. If I turn off the radio, cb and intercom, No whine. If I turn any one of them back on, I get the whine.

I have noticed that it has been getting louder the last couple of weeks. I have a Compu-Fire installed and has been in use for several years.

I don't have much load on my system but I am not sure what to do to fix it.

On another board, they suggested either the brushes or an internal capacitor in the compu-fire alternator. If the capacitor is bad, is there a capacitor I can install externally to the alternator to fix the problem?

If it is brushes, where would I get the brushes and the instructions to replace them?

Please, I need your expert help and guidance.:? Thanks for any input you might have.:)

Ed
