Alternator for GM series

The alternator that comes on the GM series stock was 55 amp. The new ym series stock alternator is a 60 amp and 80 amp option. The other day we put a YM series 80 amp on a GM series motor with no problem. The only difference is that the YM series alternator has an extra wire that you ignore.

I thought the stock alternator on the old "2GM" was a 35 Amp - is my (long-term) memory faulty?
