Actually, no they don't have the facilities.  However, I have taken the 2nd
alternator to a local auto electric shop where they tested it and it's only
putting out a little over 13 volts which I do not believe is enough.  I plan
to retrieve my original alternator and have it re-built (which I should have
done in the first place).

Can't the parts place test the alternator off the car with their machine?

   Here's a synopsis - Almost new battery went dead. Charged battery and
took car to shop. Meter shows alternator is not charging battery (only 12
volts, not 14.6 as per Dan Master's book). Buy rebuilt alternator and the
same thing happens.  Swap alternator for a second rebuilt unit - same thing,
battery is not being charged. Tried 3 different meters - all showed 12
volts.  Hard to believe I got 2 bad rebuilt alternators.  What's wrong??
