1976 dj5-d needs alternator!

Hey guys new jeep owner here. I bought this postal jeep for my mail route and have been having problems with the alternator. It looks as though they don't make an alternator for my year model anymore. Anyone know of a substitute that would fit into the belt scheme and manifold layout (factory)?

If I remember correctly a CJ5 of the same year with the same motor will interchange most parts. Pull the alternator clean it up a bit and find the numbers on it then go to napa and have them look it up based on the numbers.
