Oliver 77 voltage regulator

Restoring a 1949 Oliver 77 Fleetline Row Crop. It does not have any charging system installed, only a battery and starter. My first Oliver installation so I'm not familiar with Oliver electrical set up. I have all new gauges and a correct ammeter. I plan on setting it up as negative ground 12 volt generator charging system. Have already refurbished starter with new bearings, bushings, brushes, fields rewound, etc. The donor generator is a Delco Remy 12 volt with the following number on the data tag: 1101013
and a stray number 2B10. Don't know for sure where the generator originated but it was in a pile of Oliver 77/88 and 88 industrial parts. The generator is in fairly good shape, especially the main shaft. Will get new bearings/bushings, brushes etc and the bendix looks good. I want to match the generator with a correct 12 volt negative ground voltage regulator. Does anyone know what the 49 oliver's generator's came with, a three or 4 post regulator. A correct regulator part number would be even more helpful. Once I get everything refurbished I will get an all new wiring harness for the correct regulator and a 4 wire rear light harness. I do have 5 oliver manual's that I will research but I am trying to get someone's opinion that knows Oliver tractors. I'm also planning on putting an Oliver Super 77/88 pto system in my tractor and replace my tractor's clutch throw-out bearing, install electronic ignition and rebuild the carb and intake system. My early impression of the Oliver 77 is very good. Excellent power, smooth torque, and easy of starting. Not real crazy about the braking system or transmission but I'm getting more familiar with the tractor. One thing that I do not like is having the clutch so close to the left brake, especially for my friends and grandkids who get to drive it. I grew up on John Deere's but I think Oliver would have sold a lot more tractors if they had a bigger system of dealerships. I find the Oliver very easy to work on and simple to get up and down from the seat. I could see a Super 99 or 1850/1950, or even a Cockshutt 50 on my next project list. Promise shorter inputs in future posts. Thanks
