We get most of are parts like that from Holden, not cheap though but Billet not cast so don't fly apart.

Looks to me like your belt was over tightened.

Obviously I was wrong surmising it might be an alternator.

The dynamo looks a different construction to the usual Lucas item, maybe Lucas have changed the design? If its not a Lucas dynamo then the shaft diameter and keyway may be different sizes, its something to bear in mind when ordering a replacement.
