The battery light comes on with ignition on and turns off when the engine is started but the battery is not charging and the battery drains down. After charging manually, voltage is about 12.8v. With the engine running , the voltage does not increase ( should be around 13-14v), I have cleaned the connections at the battery. Is there anything else (ie other typical electrical weak links on these cars ) to check before I take on the time consuming / PITA task of replacing this alternator ? - Thanks

You checked all your grounds? How 'bout the connections at the alt. If it happened suddenly its more likely your alternator. I take it the battery is good? Any shorts/drains?
