    I don't think so, they have different windings.

    External regulator and the rotor are different part numbers.
    Have you looked into Hitachi alts? They make quite a few that look like they can be made to work...even come with vacuum pumps.
    I have a thread on this forum somewhere where I talk about the model numbers and give a link to a website.
    Search on Hitachi and vaccum and you should hit it.

    Actually, I will have a 24v one to sell too. I forgot about that....but it won't have a vacuum pump on it. It will also be a fine spline.
