Default DelcoRemy 50DN 12v not working

1999 LXi.. my alternator is not producing any power. The "F" terminal has 12.6vdc, thus I think that the regulator is functioning, is that a correct assumption? I found a source for the circuit board inside of the regulator, so I could repair the regulator if it is my problem.
The 12v 50DN is obsolete. I am trying to figure out my options. A company named ElReg has a replacement for $1,100, I don't know anything about their quality. Should I look for a local shop to rebuild the alternator? D & C Electric suggested replacing it with a Niehof C671 aircooled 400amp 12v alternator at a parts cost of $3400 including regulator.
Please help as I am at a loss as to my best option.

I thought Randy and someone else had replaced their 50DN with another brand 200 amp alternator. I believe it required a new mount.

OK, Randy, I get it! So you can provide original and two of you have kits. I am not trying to cut into anybody's business or push anyone into any direction. I did find a thread that talks about the conversions. Different alternators, different mounts, different vendors.
