The 120 amp unit you have fits 99 and later. There is even a second part # that is a 120 amp unit that has a clutch on the pulley. What I would do is transfer your alternator mounting bracket over to the replacement engine and re-use your alternator, that way everything stays the same as it was. I assume that you still have the old engine, right? The pulley is different and the electrical connections are different so I would not even try to use the 120 amp unit. Here, this web site is valuable to identify alternator applications. It even lists the OEM ID # that is almost always on the alternator rear section. Note: The cursor does not change when you click on something but still takes you there. >> http://www.genco1.com/database/index.htm

I do not have the old engine anymore - my gut call is the engine that was put in the car may be a 1999 and that is why it has the 120 Amp alternator - I got the new engine put in about October of 09 and since then have gone through several Diehard batteries
