I think you mean alternator which is the round metal thing drive by the engine via a drive belt. It is the only accessory driven by the belts at the front of the engine that had a large electrical cable coming off it.

Trying to locate the voltage regulator on a 1988 dodge half ton pickup

It should be INSIDE of the ECM inside of the driver's side fender. I had a 90 Dodge Ramcharger and had to modify a GM alternator (change the pulley, make a spacer) and run it for a year until I found the correct ECM. The GM alternator has an internal regulator so it'll bypass the faulty circuit in the ECM. Bolt the main power lead (from your harness/alt "plug" to the back of the GM alt where it's supposed to go. Tape off the 2 exposed leads on your harness, and jumper the Gm terminal from one to the other (make sure it's a 2 prong older GM alt). Other than that, you'll have to locate an ECM. Try I wish I could have helped more. If I have, please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial to assist others with a similar problem to locate this information, Thanks and Happy Holidays.

General guidelines:
locate the wires that attach to the alt. Not what goes where and then unplug, unbolt, etc as needed. Next there should be two bolts you have to losen. One is the pivot that the alt swivels on and the other secures the alt when it is pushed out to tighten the fan belt that powers it.
