I have not read anyone trying it.
There is a video posted here or rather photos as I recall of the process to get the alternator out and likely in. Its tight in there for sure by all accounts from others who've sweated over it. There was a process of rotating a certain way to accomplish getting it out of the cavity.
As stated in another thread. This vehicle does not much which is easily serviceable. The placement of the alternator is a glaring example. It should be at the top as it is in every vehicle I have seen and owned in the past. Rarely does the Power steering pump or AC compressor need to be removed.
I did not know a larger alternator existed although for 20A its not worth it. Check with the parts source maybe you got the wrong one or there is another casting w/140A.
