Later W124s had larger did wagons. Look into a 1995 E320 wagon alternator perhaps.

You didn't mention, what kind of draw are you looking at? How much power do you push?

I just installed a 143A unit on my 1987 300D, should be simple on your 300E as well. Here's a link to my post with details & photos:
