Q: Voltage Regulator Mounting on a 1967
Could somebody please look at their 1967 and tell me how the voltage regulator mounts? I took mine off of project bird over a year ago and am having troubles figuring exactly how it goes back on. The regulator has 3 mounting holes but I can’t seem to get 3 holes on the rad. support that match up. There seem to be lots of holes in the vicinity and one hole has a rubber grommit in it.
A: The regulator mounts to the hole with the rubber grommet, plus two others that used to have grommets, way up near the top of the support. One of them is actually under the lip when viewed from the front of the car. Holes are about 1/2″ diameter. BTW the rubber grommets have a built in threaded insert that the regulator screws go into, and compress them, sort of like a pop rivet does when you install one.
A: thanks for your response on the voltage regulator mounting. I found the three holes and even found new rubber bushings with nuts (called well nuts I found out) at Kragens Auto Parts.
