Is it possible to get a reasonable test of an alternator while out of the vehicle so as not to put a duff one in?

Can anyone suggest a method?


Not really. Apart from the practicality of spinning it, you will not be able to test it under load ie healights, heated screen etc. I think all you can do do is check the brushes and clean it. The only other precaution is to aquire the replacement from a reputable source.
