Most likely it is built into the alternator. The field is just a ground wire to the block. I do remember though. That there was a black bar across the back of the alternator, that would go bad and cause the alternator not to work. Had a wire going to it, one coming out(both big), And 2 leads that bolted to the alternator.

Cant find the voltage regulator anywhere? Can you please help. 1991 b350 van dodge

not like the old days it does not have an external regulator-it is integral with the alternator now, use a digital voltage meter to read the output at the rear of the alternator (large post)-is should be about 14.2 volts.

Voltage regulator on a 1985 dodge railant,where is it located ?

It could be in any one of 4 places. If your alternator is made by Chrysler or Bosch the car will have either an external regulator mounted on the right inner fender or in the power/logic module. If your alternator is Bosch or Mitsubischi it has an internal regulator. If the regulator is on the inner fender or screwed to the back of the alternator (Bosch) they are easily replaceable. The Bosch one only needs the screws undone and it comes off. The internal regulator needs to have the alternator taken apart to change the regulator.
Sorry if this sounds confusing but maybe this is why Chrysler was in trouble in the 80's. Hope this helps.
