I started the coupe after a couple of months without use and the magic smoke escaped from the alternator. There is now 0V across the battery, warning light continuous and voltmeter doesn't get off the stop.

The dead one is a battered Magnetti Marelli 55A type.

I would like to replace it with a 65 A type but the only ones that are immediately available are also 55A types. I do recognise that Mark is selling race type alternators but they seem a bit steep at 205 and 210. Maybe if I can't find find an alternative.

Can anyone recommend a supplier? Or do I just have to keep looking?

All assistance gratefully received.

Aha!

This looks on the face of it as if it may be the answer. An alternator for a Delta integrale.

Would anybody care to offer an opinion on this? It looks like it has the same pulley size and the mountings look as if they should be similar.

PS I have another related question about the bush in the top adjuster link.

And the final answer is that this is a case of me being too clever for my own good.

When the alternator arrived it was indeed very similar but the bottom mounting had an extra, removable, steel spacer but the show stopper was that the plastic pulley was significantly further from the body of the alternator. The pulley fixings were also different to the original so I couldn't swap them over.

Hopefully I'll be able to return it for a less ambitious alternative.

Worth knowing - sorry you had to find out the hard way. Hopefully you'll find a suitable Beta one at the right price.
