I didn't find any detail info, just one reference to where regulator
switches off above 320F.  as for "cooking" the wiring's insulation,causing
failure, all I can go by is normal motor/generator insulation classes, the
cheapest should not exceed 220F and the best 320F

My first suspect would be HEAT.  Google shows two different external fans,
one being more air flow than other.
When I get time I'll search more on alternator temperature range.
