What is the specs on this alternator?

I got this at the junk yards while back and I told the guy I needed a 5.9 alternator. He came from the back with this one and I couldn't find any specs online but I'm using my phone so maybe someone on here can help me out. Here is a pic of the sticker with the numbers on it. Thanks for the help!

121000-3470 comes back as 90AMP alt.

-4170 and -4171 are 136 amp from the 5.2 or 5.9

Thanks man! I should have known they didn't have one. I have one more question. I got a almost new alternator from the jy and it has a bigger pulley on it. I looked at the one on my zj and it had a smaller pulley on it. They are both 7 grooves but the diameters are different the one I have on is smaller and the junk yard alternator. Would the alternator with the smaller diameter spin faster?

If they are both the same number of grooves you should be ok. You'll need an impact to get the pulley off though.

I just want the most RPMs out of the alternator as possible.

What do you mean? The alternator's a generator, not a motor. You can hook it up all you want, she won't spin...

The faster the alternator spins the more juice it produces right?

i think he means he wants to put a smaller size pulley on the alternator to make it spin faster when the engine is running

Yes! Will it spin faster with the smaller one?
