Voltage Regulator for 1995 Dynasty

Anybody have any idea on the part number for this? Appears to be a ford regulator and im not sure if there are a few different types.

The problem I am having is the voltage slowly climbs up to around 15V then quickly falls back to 13 and will oscillate between these points while driving.

Since its getting to 15V Im assuming the regulator is not working properly and there is another function of the regulator that is opening the field momentarily to control the overcharge.

Any information is greatly appreciated.

The coach prior to my current 2001 Dynasty was a 1995 Dynasty and the Cummins 8.3 engine was equipped with a Leece-Neville alternator with internal voltage regulator to produce the necessary 12v current supply. If there are fluxuating voltage swings as you indicated, i would suspect the alternator will need to be removed and repaired by an quality rebuild facility or replaced with a purchased unit (rebuilt or new) to correct the charging problems.

The other potential problem you might consider, although unlikely, is that with these voltage swings would be that of the alternator being subjected to corresponding, varying 12v electrical loads (normal 12v circuits or inverter loads) and the alternator is responding to these corresponding fluxuating loads.

Hope this helps and Happy RV'g.

Thanks for the reply. I did find a regulator on this one that is external. When unplugged it does not charge. Took it apart and it was looking pretty crusty. Cleaned it up but the results were the same. The oscillations in the guage and the light intensity of all lamps are at the rate of a turn signal flasher. When driving this , it looks like a travelling circus.

Did that, sorry I may have fat fingered the mouse when posting.

Found a HD version of a Ford regulator, installed it and all the problems are fixed. Thanks for all the replies.
