You would probably have to re-clock it but stock alternators for 85 Cad Devilles came in 108 or 120 amp ratings and aren't hard to find. I've got one out in the shed that I plan to stick on my 48 that was on the last mid 80's Deville we had. I bought it a couple of months before something gave out on that one and pulled it off and kept it.
Or you can go buy a fancy one with 100+ amp output.
Understand that the size of the wire is going to be 1/2" Diameter. Not quite as big as the heater hose but large enough.
