Voltage Regulator

Postby wschneid » Sat Oct 03, 2020 9:10 am

I have a 1986 Marinette 32 with the twin Chrysler 318 engines. One engine (alternator) is not charging. I had the alternator checked and it was okay. so I'm thinking it is the regulator. What type of regulator would it be? (part #, model) and where would it be located?

Chrysler part # is 2847527, NAPA # is SME185710. Not sure where they are located on the 80's models. I do know that on the 70's models, they were wired thru the oil pressure switch, so if the oil switch went bad, the reg will not turn on.

Converted mine over to one wire alternators from Arco Marine, internal regulators, never looked back.

BigM
The location of the regulator is under the black plastic box at the rear of the engine. ;)

Think Arco also sells a regulator, and yes it's under the black plastic cover, on the backside.
