Will probably need a picture or two (front and back) - there is the alternator that was fitted originally and what it could be now. Then there is what might fit ;)

Negative earth.

The difference is the method of regulation - originally it would have an 11AC alternator with an external regulator (4TR I think?) whereas modern units (like the Lucas ACR series, A127 units) have the regulator internal to the unit.
