Well, you are going to want to remove the alternator (easy) and the top radiator hose so you can get a chain wrench in there ($8.00 per day rental at Home Depot). Also have a breaker bar and a 3-4 ' extension as the bolt is very tight ( around100 ftlbs) and someone to help with the pully bolt removal. To get the bolt tight after swaping the pully your going to need the chain wrench again so find some leather to wrap that shiney new pully in so it dosent get chig-d. If your going to replace the alternator pully save yourself some expensive fustration and take it to a starter/alternator shop to have the pully replaced. Putting screwdrivers in the alternator is a bad idea as it is easy to damage to windings on the stator. If you have all the tooling together it should take the better part of the day with a run to the alternator shop.

you could do it that way
or wait till its cool enought not to burn yourself
loosen and remove the two belts (and belt cover)
put the car in 4th gear and let the clutch out have a friend stand on the brakes hard
put a breaker bar or quality 1/2" wrench + socket on the pulley bolt ...
i have had to use cheeter bars 4 feet er so long
~15 min total
recomend a 1/2" deep impact socket and not an extension
hopefully one with a warrenty as i have broken them too
more likely 250+ ft lbs or more

Air tools work the best on the alt. I used the key bump method for the crank. Didn't have to remove any hoses or the radiator. Put breaker bar on crank bolt. Put handle of bar tight against driver side frame rail. Have a friend crank(bump) the key. Bolt breaks loose right away. DO NOT let the motor start.
