    My alternator which is a Denso 100211-8740 (12V-95A) quit working, and my friend has a Denso 100211-8150 (12V-80A) alternator. Can I put the 8150 alternator in my prelude? ...or do I have to get the same Amp output?

    ** The 8150 alternator has a 5 groove pulley... I was told I can put my 6 groove pulley from mine on the other alternator and it will work. Is this true?

    I wouldn't take a chance of blowing another alternator. The Amp rating on the alternator is there for a reason. The 80A alternator will have to work harder to charge your battery versus the 95A. You can probably rebuild the old alternator by changing out the brush inside of it. Just my opinion.
