is there a better voltage regulator out there, parts store thought a lot of this one?
Does anyone offer a solid-state regulator for your application? It's common these days for point style regulators to have problems with the contact surfaces on the points corroding and sticking together. A solid-state regulator has no moving parts and is more reliable.
I've had good luck with the Wells brand, sold by Autozone under there Duralast label, on '60's era Chevelles. You might see if there's a direct substitution for the Delco part number that came on your tractor.
If not, maybe one from a '70's era Volkswagen would work, I know that they used 12V generators.
Just some ideas for you.
EDIT: Found this site that sells USA made original-style regulators- http://brillman.com/store/delco-type-r198-12-volt-voltage-regulator-premium-quality-usa.html This post was edited by Ark68SS at 21:30:33 04/01/14 2 times.
