Where do I locate the voltage regulator for my 1995 Chevy G30 HD Van- 5.7L V8 Gas? I have been told various things like it's mounted to the alternator or it's built-into the alternator. Nobody will give me a straight answer. Is it EXTERNAL or not, and if so where is it located at? Running fine except when I turn on a variety of electrical items like driving lights, heat/fan and park lights all at once. Voltmeter shows battery staying charged (without use of other electrical items) at 12-13V and while running tests at 14.6V. Turn on the headlights/park lights and the voltage drops when it should go up in charging value to what my book says of 15-17V. In other words it's not upping the voltage to accommodate the extra power draws and charge the battery too. Internal Voltmeter (dash) drops to 1/4 from the normal halfway mark when adding draw to the system. Based on what I have read it's the voltage regulator, but now I need to know where it's located at to change it. The image provided is what every parts house says is in my vehicle.
