    I'm assuming a '78 alternator will work with a '74 voltage reg? The regs physically don't appear different other than mounting location.

    Why not just get one with the internal regulator? I think you are correct, they should be compatible.

    Cause I have easy access to a '78 alt. and the only reason I want it anyway is because my York mount system might require it. My voltage reg is brand new too. Basically this is just the cheapest way out. :D

    Does your Alternator also have Oil lines? ::)
