I don't specifically know what Moss sells for this, but over the
years the most popular as it was easiest is from a Ford Fiesta (not
Festiva). The Fiesta was in the late 70's front wheel drive made in
Germany from the British Ford Cortina engine. So, the mountings, etc.
worked for the Lucas alternator when in a Cortina, and of course the
German Fiesta would've used the Bosch unit. They freely interchange,
and the Bosch unit is/was 55 amps.

BTW, it is NEVER a good idea to unplug an alternator while the car is
running... any car.
