Alternator rebuild kit?

I converted my Fiat to an alternator and after a few months of driving it has started to get a little play in the shaft. Enough for the fan to hit the shroud. I removed the belt. Spun the pulley and I hear it rubbing. I push on the pulley and spin it and the noise stops. So my question is what are my options here?
Is a rebuild kit available or am I going to have to buy a new alternator?

Sounds like bearings to me. There is one at the front and one at the rear of the alternator. All the parts suppliers have them. You will need to remove the alternator and strip it down to get access to them

Replace the carbon brushes and springs while you are at it.
