An alternator will typically put out 14V when running and I believe our cars were rated at 65 amps originally so you would be fine.
Someone flipped the bolt on my car like that even before I got it, so it’s always been easy to remove. It was the coolant pipe that was in the way which made it difficult to take out from the car! I was on a run changing out voltage regulators on a regular basis years ago that I figured out a way to do it while still in the car!
Yes, prices have jumped substantially in recent years as some components are getting harder to find (if at all). You don’t want to know how much complete Marelli distributors are going for nowadays... Hindsight is 20/20 and we should’ve bought up all of Dennis McCann’s stock back in 2007. $700 each would be a steal today!

I found a really nice rebuilt alternator but it's 14v 65 amps. I know that's more than the factory rated one. Will this cause any damage to my
electrical system or will it actually charge the battery better? That was hard to get off. I was smart enough last time I serviced the car to reverse the bolt holding the alternator to its bracket so you don't have to remove the dipstick tube, but still with
the alternator heat shield in place it barely had enough room to slip off!
