volvo penta md1 starter generator

Our old (69) volvo penta is hanging in there, but the starter/generator smoke-checked itself this past weekend. Literally hit the start switch and smoke came out of the top of the thing. Turns out it wasn't recharging the battery either.

Got a shop to rebuild it, says he's rebuild a number of others. OTOH, checked with one of the big web guys that specializes in diesel generators and starters of all types and he said he didn't sell a replacement and didn't know of any.

Does any know of a good replacement for the original setup? I'm hoping the rebuild works for a while, but might as well start thinking about what to do in the future.
