Hi all,

Does anybody know where the alternator regulator is supposed to be?
In my Chiltons there's a pic showing the thing on the right wall of the engine compartment just under the starter relay.
In my cat it it stashed on the right side attached to the radiator frame between the window washer tank, the radiator and radiator frame.
Since I don't trust any of the wiring in my car to be original, does anybody here know where it is supposed to be? I'm thinking about moving it to under the starter relay, but don't know if that would be correct. Engine is (originally) 302 4V.

Thanks,
Matthijs

Yours is were it belongs on a 67/68. The 69 and newer are under the starter relay.

Thanks, clarifies the matter a bit. However, this raises the issue of an original radiator in priority.
The radiator that's in now looks like a caddilac one (waaaay too big) and is tied to the support frame covering half of the alternator regulator.
Thanks again.

Cheers!
Matthijs
