It doesn't have one. At least it didn't when it came from the factory. It used something called a cutout which was usually mounted right on the generator. It would look a lot like a regulator though.
Do you know if your tractor still has the original generator? Is it still 6 volt with a positive ground battery? If not, and if it was converted to a 12 volt system, it may have a modern alternator with the regulator built inside.

Prob original generator. 1945 tractor, 6 volt battery, mag & starter. Since the tractor sat out in the weather without running for a few years I figured I should have generator & starter reconditioned to save problems down the road. Man at the shop said we need to look at the regulator also cause if it was bad it would prob burn up the generator. Don't remember seeing anything that looked like a regulator or cutout.

The cutout is usually mounted right on the generator. It's a metal box about 3in X 3in square, about 2-1/2inches high. It keeps the battery from draining into the generator when the motor is shut down. It has only 1 coil and contact set inside.
Battery charging rate is manually controlled by the operator with the 4 position switch mounted with the amp meter. That switch also controls the lights.

I don't remember seeing what you describe on the generator so possibly the generator is not original. I do have the control switch that mounts on the steering. Thanks Red.
