Rated 2 out of 5 by from MAKE SURE you want a MECHANICAL regulator I bought this when I was replacing my alternator, as I saw this original autolite style regulator and figured it was a good idea to replace my old one. However, I didn't read up on the difference between the old school mechanical version (this one) vs the new school electronic version. After installing this one I dealt with super dim headlights, and some charging issues. I did some reasearch and realized I probably switched to an electronic style at some point. They function MUCH better. If you care about concours correct, then get this one. If you don't, make the switch to electronic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buy an electric regulator Dont buy, get the electronic regulator. This is my third regulator I have purchased and my Alt light still flickers (1965 Mustang). O'Reilly's test equipment, again, says the voltage regulator failed. I instaled a new refab alternator just in case but it did not fix. My grounds and wiring are new and good. I read more on the internet... The electronic regulator will fix my prob. I'm also going to get a new (not a remanufactured) 3 wire alternator from CJ (refab alternators can't be trusted). Not CJpony's fault just the nature of aftermarket parts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Autolite voltage regulator I am using these in Cobra builds and they are a great period looking part. I have had a faulty one in the past but that is better than going transistorized.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great, and it Looks Just Like Factory I Bought This Along With New Engine Bay Wiring Harnesses, It Works Great!!!....No issues/Problems, and IMO the Quality of This Item is Excellent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 65 voltage regulator Bought one 7 years ago for my seldom driven show car. Over voltage ruined V-belt and boiled battery, (dirt and acid everywhere). Got this new one and it is consistant with other one as it has too high of a voltage. Very poor quality repro. Looks great but poor functionality. Put on an old rusty used regulator and charging is fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not seem to be correct spec Not a good review from me, I replaced my old Volt Reg as it looked original and thought I would swap it out before it possibly failed (although there was nothing wrong with it at the time) However after this I burnt out 2 x Alternator belts ( 1 for each trip of approx 30 miles ) took me a while to work out the cause, tracked it back to the new Voltage Reg charging at up to 17 volts in some cases, when the manual suggests 13 - 14 ish range is max, (this unit also seemed to the sealed and non adjustable) Long story short, I reinstalled the original 1965 factory Volt Reg, and now back to charging at 13 - 14 volts, and no more alternator belt issues, I am not entirely sure why the overcharging caused the Alt belt to strip / burnt out (twice, both were new and adjusted correctly) perhaps some sort of resistance in the Alt action caused by the over charging) but in any case, it is working perfectly again now with the original part re installed. Unit looks nice, but does not seem to function correctly (not for my car anyway) I see other good reviews here, so perhaps I just got a dud

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect match The old part was not made for this year vehicle. It was causing some problems. This part works perfect. Problem solved.

I just replaced my alternator in a 1965 TBird (390 ci w/AC) and the gauge indicates its discharging I checked the wiring even got a replacement alternator, could it be the regulator?

is the voltage adjustable to 13.5-14 v.

Asked by: hoggi
Seems not, sealed unit and I had an issue with this part charging my battery up to 17 v in some cases, made my battery hot / sizzling sound, + burnt out 2 x alternator belts in 2 weeks, seemed like the over charging was causing some sort of resistance in the action of the alternator, which burnt out the belt twice, I'm not certain why that is, but I have changed back to my original factory Voltage Reg, it charges at 13 - 14 ish volts, and no more issues now

My existing VOLTAGE REGULATOR for my 1966 Mustang w/Air is AUTOLITE 15v C5TF-10316-A. Your catalog ( pg.139) shows this (VR3) as C5TF-10316-A w/Air but your website shows 15v C5AF-10316-A which is w/o Air? I need to order C5TF not C5AF? T vs. A??

Asked by: PDBRO
This is the one you want for your 1966 Mustang. It fits all 1966s.
