I am on Rockauto right now and the 70amp and the 80amp versions appear identical according to the pictures for the BBB Industries remanufactured alternators. Hopefully someone will chime in to confirm fitment.

A lot of Toyotas from then had similar physically shaped alternators. The big difference was the shape and position of the plug. And for us the lack of ability to attach the cooling elbow.

One from a 5SFE (Or 3SF [or G]E for you) should fit fine. Autos had higher output ones I believe.

Toyota lists different part numbers for the ST185 pre and post revision alternators (at least they used to) only because the short wiring harness that came with the alt was different between the 2. But all you need to do is swap the harness and you're fine. For example. So you should have a pretty good chance of getting one that will bolt in.

Received an 80 Amp alternator yesterday. Got it from Ebay, not too expensive and brand new. The endcap does say ND too ??

https://www.ebay.com/itm/195221239141

Found it with the 27060-74300 part number from Toyota.

No time to install yet, but first impression is good. The heatshield/cap is an direct fit and for the rest the alternator looks the same, not (much) bigger anyway.

Pleasant surprise since the alternator rebuild shop told me he could not get 80 Amp Celica alternators anymore.

Let you know if she fits, yes or no.

Well, two things.
First, the alternator sold to me by the junkyard was not an ST205 unit, but an ST185 one.
Ofcourse, I cannot tell if it came off an ST205, because the previous owner could have add an ST185 on to his 205, dunno.
The number on the alternator says: 27060-74130, what is an 70 Amp piece coming from an ST185. No big deal, the alternator did work.

Second: the new unit, from Ebay, is an direct fit. She is on the car now.

This bodes well for my Lorelei once I get her fueling issues sorted. Another 200,000km-plus of enjoyment would be perfect.
