    Ok thanks so much i thought you could but your right leaving it the same is a much easier idea.

    It's not impossible to do but you would need to carefully go over both wiring diagrams and see which wires need to be moved or omitted. In any case, likely it's better to leave your system as it is. Makes replacing one part easier than needing to replace both or disassembling alt to get at integral regulator.

Hello bwinston69: My name is Roger and I will help you. You can change the regulator as it is external. You should find it located just under or in front of the starter solenoid on the right fender of the truck. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Having trouble figuring out if i have an external or internal regulator on my 1988 f250 with a 460


Internally regulated Ford alternator will have a three wire plug and a single wire plug next to it. Plus the battery stud. The regulator is normally black or gray in color mounted on the back of alternator. The three wires plugs to the regulator. Externally regulated will not have these plugs. Hope this is helpful.

New battery and new alt. but still doesn't charge 1999 f 150


check that the new alternator has the right type of regulator for it . If you have an internal regulated alternator on a car that has an external regulator then it will not charge . Both look the same but it may have int -reg on the housing some where.

Windows wont roll up or down


window regulator. no clue without looking at it if you have a cable driven one or a gear driven one though.
if cable driven, sounds like the cable has snapped. if gear driven (most likely) then the plastic gears inside the window motor on the regulator have finally worn and stripped out.

I have an 86 toyota pcickup battery charge light is on have good battery and replaced alternator twice.


i think you have an external voltage regulator in that year , ck that first . The easy way to tell if it has an external regulator ,if it has carburated it has an external regulator if its fuel-injected its internal regulator in side the alternator.Have you checked to see how much voltage the charging system is putting out at an idle ? It should be around 13.5 volts to 14.5 volts any less then 12.5 charge light won't go out.

HOW DO I FIND THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR ON MY 2004 FORD F350 SUPER DUTY VAN?


ck your alternator if you have one large white wire and two smaller dark wires you've got an internal regulator the entire alternator needs to be replaced if bad

a simple voltmeter you can still buy at radio shack will tell you in about 30 seconds

set meter for dc volts 25 volt scale place red probe on battery positive and black probe on battery negative note reading on voltmeter (11 to 12 volts) start truck/car at idle reprobe battery same as before volts should come to about 12/13 have someone give a slight throttle to engine volts should come to 13.8 volts and stay there never going over this if any volt reading was not as described Yep your voltage regulator/alternator is bad
