05 zx4 st alternator question

Can anyone tell me what is the difference between an alternator for a/c and one for m/t. My car is a manual but no-one seems to have one in stock but my local o'reillys has one for automatic. I took mine and compared them and we couldn't see a difference. They sell one for a manual but have to order it and its 15 bucks more so if anyone knows of a difference I would appreciate the help. Thanks.

Looks like from pics the manual trans one may have the one way clutch in pulley; the ATX one does not appear to. That would cover the difference in price.
