Morning, I'm going through the wiring on my 1965 122 and correcting/repairing some things. I think the regulator is shot. It's all dirty and corroded inside. It's a Standard Ignition version, but the part number is worn away. Anyone have a link or part number for a quality regulator? Found an ebay one that claims it's made in USA Delco, with a 7-9 amp charge rate. I don't know the required specs on my rig. TIA!
 
I think I found the one you are talking about. It says "USA MADE QUALITY" not "MADE IN USA". Delco has not made these voltage regulators for decades. All you will find is aftermarket. No one in the US makes these anymore. The original Delco part number is 1118988.

My Standard unit actually says Made In USA. It cleaned up well...I might reuse it. There are some Cub branded ones on various Cub parts sites, but man are they expensive! After fixing my wiring issues, it might charge now. The Standard one has the Gen terminal on the underside, and the original Pink wire for ground was disconnected. It appears the Standard one grounds through the mounting point. I still have more wiring to finish before I can test voltage output and whatnot. Just hope it all works.

Just an idea. If you can't find an OEM voltage regularot, then take your voltage regulator to an auto parts supply and ask to see a voltage regulator for a 69-72 Ford F100. Then compare yours side-by-side. I think it may fit. Good luck.

Not even remotely close to the same thing. I posted the Delco number...there are all kinds of aftermarket units available that match the specs of the original one, one of which Charlie posted above.

Got a link? I went through many pages in a search, found one NOS one (not that one, the pics were different) and all of the rest were varying brands of aftermarket.

I may have book marked this one too....I can't remember. My ignition switch is out right now, I tried to wire in a universal switch from O'reillys and it didn't work. I'll have to put the original one back in for charging system testing purposes.
