In light of new results, the one-dimensional mean-field dynamo model of Brandenburg & Kapyla (2007) with dynamical quenching and a nonlocal Babcock-Leighton a effect is re-examined for the solar dynamo. We extend the one-dimensional model to include the effects of turbulent downward pumping (Kitchatinov & Olemskoy 2011), and to combine dynamical quenching with shear. We use both the conventional dynamical quenching model of Kleeorin & Ruzmaikin (1982) and the alternate one of Hubbard & Brandenburg (2011), and confirm that with varying levels of non-locality in the a effect, and possibly shear as well, the saturation field strength can be independent of the magnetic Reynolds number.
