    As described, I am in the process of replacing due to the existing one only charging at around 11 volts.
    Question is: Battery is 95amp so what output does the alternator need to be
    as I can only find replacements which are either more powerful or slightly less? Thanks.
    Silence is golden,,, Duct tape is silver!

    Anything from 90 amp to 140 will do.
