Archived from groups: alt>autos>toyota>trucks (more info?)

If the brake and charge lights come on during revving of the engine
then it's a sign that the carbon alternator brushes require replacing
as this is the mileage for them to wear out. In alternators the
brushes wear out on average every 140-170 000 miles where on the
dashboard the brake & charge light both come on at the same time.
About half of the auto electric shops in your local yellow pages sell
carbon alternator brushes and copper solenoid starter contacts for
about $5/pair.

Another way to verify that the alternator is not charging is while the
engine is running bring a metal screwdriver or any metal object near
the alternator and if the alternator is working properly then it
should act like a magnet and grab the screwdriver.

Whether your starter uses two rectangular types or one rectangular and
one crescent you can substitute with two squares or one square and one
crescent so any of the above part #'s for those kits will be the right
ones,or about half of the auto electric shops in your local yellow
pages would sell aftermarket contacts for only $5 each or the pair.
