"The 80 amp alternator is already driven by a double belt set up, so the 120 amp alternator would probably be just a bolt on addition."

Perhaps , but it could also be a larger frame size , as most truck units are.

The key is the alts HOT amperage rating.

A rewound car unit will give loads of amps for a short time , but the hot cont rating is usually better with larger units with better cooling.
