Re: Electronic Constant Voltage Regulator



Hello,

Voltage regulator questions have been coming up.  ANY parts house will have the electronic voltage regulator you need.  If you have a stock alternator you are good to go.  If you go with a newer two terminal field alternator like i did all you need to do is ground one field terminal it does not matter which one.  It is a good idea if your wiring is old to run a new wire from the voltage regulator to the alternator.

Please refer to the pictures of my 63 SF.  I have one of the first billet Pertronix distributors, an electronic voltage regulator and a new high amperage alternator with a field terminal grounded.  It has been running like this for years - no problems. 

If you buy an new regulator look at the bottom, if it does  not have resistors it is electronic like the one in my picture.  The actual case will vary but it will attach to your  original wiring and fit the original screw holes.

IMPORTANT
Note that one screw hole grounds the regulator, it MUST have a good ground sand a little around the screw hole where the regulator grounds.  If like mine the screw holes were getting a little lose just fold a small piece of bare stranded wire in a "V" shape, hook  it in the hole and put the screw in the screw will be tight.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Hi Guys,

I have a Mopar Performance Electronic Ignition conversion on my '63 Sport Fury 383 with a mechanical voltage regulator.

I am being told I need an electronic, "constant voltage" voltage regulator. When I look at places like Mancini, they show these, but they all say "for race only applications."

Two questions:

1) What is it about these regulators that makes them good for only race applications?

2) What is everybody else using?

I've had trouble with my "orange" box, and I'm wondering if the voltage regulator is the problem, but I don't want to go from bad to worse.

I look forward to your thoughts.
