View Full Version : Rebuilding Voltage Regulators.....

10-06-2016, 09:46 PM
Does anyone on here know of people who do? I have a Prestolite VBV-6221a for a Studebaker Avanti and a 1971 Delco for a Chevy 350 V-8 (Avanti II).

I Have been able to repair several of the Avanti regulators. There must be someone out there that does this.

I don't know of anyone that still rebuilds voltage regulators. The vast majority of cars and trucks that were built from the mid 70's upward have internal regulators in the alternators which are solid state and not re buildable. The good news is that regulators for both the Avanti and the Chevy are still available and not all that expensive. Bud

Contact Dave T-Bow, he converts them to electronic, but you must have the original case.

I just had Ken rebuild a generator for me, came out great, I just sent over the regulator for him to check out as well. I know his site is mostly for Motorcycles, but he does car stuff too.

:) Ted, since you are in the Indianapolis area, check with Van's Auto Electric on the near SW side of Indianapolis:


I don't know if they do regulators, but they did nice custom rebuilds on two of my Daytona's Prestolite alternators, and the alternator on my 1971 Barracuda convertible. Nice work, reasonable prices. :cool: BP
