    Very nice. I will keep that in mind when mine craps the bed one day!
  2. it cost me roughly 15 bucks to make mine and while i was there at radio shack i bought a project box to shove it all in

    Did you put heat sink compound between the rectifiers and the mounting plate?
  4. are you talking about thermal paste

    Yes. Sounds like you did. Just checking... ;)
  6. so i installed the new home made rectifier and the 1970 dodge regulator (vr733) and it is back to running strong and puts out a nice 13.97 volts at a idle and 14.76 at a nice rev:smoke:

    Good job. These sorts of solutions are very useful. Most people don't know that it is possible to use a home made or different reg/rect.

    Great photos. Any chance of grabbing a higher-rez version to use as a desktop? I'd put mine there but it's not nearly so nice looking, and also in pieces.
  18. yea maybe later on today if i get a chance to take it out
