Are there any sustitutes for the Ford voltage regulator used on a 1976 LGT 165?

I know that a replacement from New Holland is about $110 and was wondering if a
regulator from some other tractor using a Kohler K341 could be substituted?

Is the regulator a Ford exclusive or is it a Kohler part?

Any thoughts would be ppreciated.

Thanks

I would think that just about any regulater from a Kohler "K" engineed tractor would work........Just a thought, but more times than not, when I was having trouble with one of those, it was just a loose coonection, mostly at that 3 pronged plug. that plugs into it.

Good point Poncho. You can usually remove the connections from the plug and clean them if you need to. Dirt and corrosion can easily interfere with a good connection. Even a small amount of resistance will stop the regulator from working properly. The regulator also needs a good connection from it's case back to the battery negative terminal so check that as well.

One off an Onan will work also. I swap them around all the time. These regulators MUST have a good ground to function!
