How do you know if you have a 80 or 140 amp alternator? I am looking for a '98 328i?

Thanks, Its a 140 I just pulled from the car and it has 140 marked on it. I took off the plastic air duct cover and it was full of dirt and bugs, etc. One of the brushes is almost done, but it is still making contact. One thing I thought was not correct is when I took the Ohm meter and measured the hot stud to the case and it is grounded. This I think is a short. What do you think?

Thanks!
