Default Ford Regulator Replacement

Anyone know the replacement number for Ford Regulator part numbers D4TZ-10316 A or D9PZ-10316 A.

And anyone how to decode these numbers?

I see C5AF-10316 A on amazon that is rated 38/42 amps...I can't find the ones above and don't know what they are rated.

Thanks in advance.

10316 is the Ford "basic" part number, all alternator regulators are 10316, the prefix and suffix indicate the application.


The C5AF you reference will work fine as likely your Cobra doesn't have AC, a power top, etc. Most any aftermarket regulator will do the job unless you are looking for a reproduction unit to replicate the units used in 60's Cobras. All of the current aftermarket units have "low" covers and are electronic, the O.E. units have "tall" covers and are electro-mechanical type.

Here is new: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/s...caAk9IEALw_wcB

And here is original type: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl...act=mrc&uact=8

great; thank you.

dumb question: if I have a mechanical voltage regulator now, what does it take to convert over to an electronic one? (I did a google search but didn't see specific answer).

Nothing, just replace the electro-mechanical unit with the electronic. There is nothing required to substitute.

Or. you can get the electronic version (which has the top riveted on), drill out the rivets, and replace the low top with the older high top using screws to fasten the high top to the electronic regulator base.

New electronics dressed like the old electro mechanical.

Just a thought.

Cover is upside down, the plug should be at the bottom of the cover with the text readable. I would guess that with the wiring in your car, you installed the cover to be "readable" from the normal hood open position but correctly it would be opposite!


And what you suggest is what I did in the 80's and 90's as a Ford Restoration Parts license holder! We took electronic units that we special ordered with the "tall" cover and stamped them to the various engineering numbers used on 60's Fords.

Hi Mark IV. Yup , you are absolutely right.

I just like it better that way!

But you may have noticed I lettered the wiring terminals.

Cheers
