Can't answer your question in regards to what sizes exactly, but all you need is some basic hand tools(ratchet, sockets, wrenches, and a pry bar to tighten the alternator).

Disconnect the battery first! Negative side first!

Good luck

You don't mention the engine size, so as Chad says it depends.

You'll need most likely a good set of metric and standard wrenches and rachets and a basic multimeter to check the output of the new unit when you are done.

Most common hand tools found in any DIY guys toolbox should do.
