    Default 1957 Chrysler Crown generator voltage regulators

    A real shot in the dark here, ...................
    I have a pair of 1957 Chrysler Crown M47's that need new voltage regulators for the generators. I have had no luck (zero, zilch, nothing) finding out what currently available regulator will work properly with these engines.

    This is a 12V system.

    The generators are marked with GJU-7502 (which is a Prestolite #), and 2095364 (which is a Chrysler #), and 9E000232 (I haven't figured out what this number is yet).

    The engine manual calls for Autolite VRU-6002BM regulators, which seem to cross to the Chrysler # 1550 579. I have had no luck crossing these regulator numbers to anything that is available today.
    There is a hand notation in the engine manual that an appropriate regulator is a Borg Warner R-185, but that is unconfirmed.

    Any help as to what currently available regulator will work would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I'd suggest finding a good auto electric shop...preferably with a few grey haired individuals.....

    If that dont pan out, you can always try the BW part, assuming you can locate a pair....

    there always the alternator conversion.......
