Alternator ID Help

I'm trying to replace the Argentinian alternator on my Series 1 but am having a hard time locating a similar mounting style - but I know they exist and are common. It has two mounting ears on one side about 3" apart that mount to the motor bracket, and then one ear on the opposing side that acts as the tensioner (see attached example). Most alternators I am looking at have one ear on each side. It's a one-wire alt too. Any idea crossover applications??

Cheers!

Looks like a CS 130, but can't really tell. The aspwholesale site I have used and has great prices and service.

Are you buying a complete alternator or just parts? The CS 130 Delco is pretty hard to beat and pumps out as much as 220 amps. You'd want a double pulley for it. 115A at idle, are you kidding me? aspwholesale has various pulleys for it under the parts section. $200. Killer.

Replacing alternator. It's for a 2.0L Series I, so I don't need crazy amps, just something to keep the truck running.

Are you sure it's not just a Lucas 16ACR? Although I think those have the single eye mount off to one side a bit. They can be run as a single wire as well. Sorry if this is obvious, but a lot of series end up with these swapped in.
