What should a new alternator cost.? $ Labor (hours) and $ Parts. Thank you.

(1999 Lincoln Continental)
My husband noticed the battery light (a new battery) so took it in to see why. They tested the electrical system first. Then told him the car needed an alternator, which took three hours (may be because they needed the parts to come from another location) and gave an estimate of $800+ We REALLY need to know if that was a fair price, which incl. labor. I don't have the breakdown of the two prices. I recall it had to be new because he tried to get a used one.

A remanufactured Motorcraft will run $290 and this is OE. You can get a cheaper one but on electrical we typically like to go with OE. The labor will run around $150.
