RE: Mopar Performance electronic distributor pulsing



In the mid 80’s, when Iacocca got the first government bailout for Chrysler, part of the agreement was that Chrysler divest itself of the tank, motorhome and marine divisions and empty all its warehouses of V-8 stuff… The founder of Odd Lots got his start liquidating ALL that stuff-It was supposed to go out of country but most of it never did… We got pallets of brand new 452 heads, 440 cast crank short blocks, carburetors and distributors beyond what today would seem to be a huge gold strike… We recurved the electronic distributors, added the MP wiring harness and orange or chrome box and used ballast resistors and voltage regulators we got from Wells-Ampco… (Later on we also used the Wells chrome control boxes for an ‘econo’ kit)…The  voltage regulators looked like the stock black box style from the outside but inside they had a circuit board and worked just great for keeping the electronic ignitions buzzing very nicely!

Perhaps I was not as clear as I thought (compounded by the fact that dear ol' ma MOPAR wasn't always consistent)  The different types of voltage regulators I was referring to are these:


http://www.ebay.com/itm/100-New-12V-Alternator-Voltage-Regulator-Chrysler-Dodge-Plymouth-/331424618294?hash=item4d2a725736&vxp=mtr


Which looks like the old point-type regulators used on breaker point ignitions, but (as stated in the ad) are now solid-state.

and this one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Standard-VR-125-NEW-Voltage-Regulator-CHRYSLER-DODGE-PLYMOUTH-1969-1992-/161697759706?hash=item25a5f001da&vxp=mtr

and similar appearing units with the triangular plug connector, and including the blue MOPAR "race only" regulator.

The advantage of the first unit, if that's what your voltage regulator looks like, is that no wiring changes are needed.  The second one can be retrofitted into a car that had the first type, but wiring changes are needed.  The later regulator was used on MOPARS with "dual field" alternators. which started (I think) in 1967.

I was thinking that might be the problem. Electronic boxes like a more even voltage than the old mechanical regulators generally give, although you can turn them up a bit.   I have the blue box on mine at this time, but plan to switch to the electronic regulator in the near future just to be safe.  It's only a matter of a later alternator and a wire. Main reason is the easy availability of replacement parts.   That said, I have a couple summers on the blue "race" box, and have no problems, and have never seen over charging at least by my old amp gauge.  My electronic system is made up of all pieces I had laying around, and it works great.  Don't give up on it.
