New alternator/starter for Perkins 7.5KW generator

My electrician has suggested to replace the existing starter/generator (15A) with a larger one, to have it as a backup. He installed a battery charger/combiner for my two battery banks, so they can be charged from the main engine's alternator (160A). He wants to have the generator's alternator as a backup charger. Anyone knows this old Perkins diesel generator and can suggest a new alternator for it?
