Voltage Regulator Dodge WC-51

Hi all;
Does someone know a place to repair a 6 volt voltage regulator from an 1944 Dodge WC-51?
Thanks in advance;
Freddy

Freddy, I went electronic as well.

However, and depending on where you live, I take both my generator and my regulator to a local generator/starter rebuild shop here in SC, and they match both to ensure they operate well together. Where abouts are you livin'?

I was thinking on doing that. Saw two websites, both in Europe, selling it for 220 euros, around $270.
Did you buy it here in the USA?

I live in Miami. We don't have that kind of shop here anymore.
I would probably go electronic, too.
Thanks;

Thank you Freddy. Thank you. That was a fund project.

Sounds like you are hooked up. I have some of Gaston's boards in 12 volt if he is out. I won't be using them now.

Zepher11:
Just contacted Col. Barmore and will send me an 6V.
Those 12V you have can be converted to 6V ?

No, wasn't sure if your truck was an early 6 volt or 12 volt.
