Physically the same size, just higher output. With the VIN, call ford and they will tell you which one yours came with. Parts dept!

Is there any difference in the case? I want to put the 130 in my car if there is no difference in the case, and e-bay also has a 180 amp one available for the 1998 Mercury Sable 3 liter.

If you dont need it, dont use it! Use the one designed for your car, or you are asking for trouble.

Is the amperage marked on the alternator anywhere? I plan on buying a used one because new ones are just way to expensive where I live, ( over $200 )

Yes they do. I would agree going with 130 amp as price difference is very small.
