Our alternator is 120 Amp which is no longer available. Today they are 140, 160 and higher amperages. We manage ours with an AR-5 3-stage External Regulator. As a practical matter, with a single belt, I don't think any alternator really produces its advertised capacity but ours has been very satisfactory anyway ("knock on wood" eh?).

See Tuff Stuff Silver Bullet Alternators - SummitRacing.com

FWIW...
