I'm looking for a new regulator for my grandpa's power king.  His looks like this but seem harder to find on ebay.

 Mine looks like this:

These seem plentiful and I can find real good deals on them.  My questions are: 

Is one better than the other?

Are the mounting holes spaced the same?

Other than having to cut the harness made the fit the first and having to crimp connectors to make it fit the second, any other downsides to switching?

He is not worried about getting a used one (these seem to hold up pretty well).  Thanks for any help.

Do you know the part number for that one in the first pic?

The second is a Kohler Regulator

 

If I were you I'd just get a new one as they are not that expensive, my price on that one on the bottom is $30.00 ($62.00) List price

The oregon part number for the first one is 33-400 and the stens is 435024 (or S435024).  Is the first one not a Kohler regulator?  His tractor is a 1974 and mine is a 1973.  His has a wire harness to attach to the prongs but mine is just has the three wires with female fittings that attach to each prong.  If it were me I would just get the second one, cut the harness off, crimp on new connectors and go with it.  I can understand why he would want to keep the same setup he has though.  He also does not like to work with wiring and he lives 3 hours away from me.  I was hoping to order something and just have it sent to his house.

Thanks for the quick reply!

Sorry about that the top one is for Kohler as well

I can get that one as well, but those are more expensive.

My Price would be $ 52.92  (List of $ 76.00)

If I was you, I would go with what was there.  The one in the top picture is very common, too.  41 403 06 is the Kohler number. 

 

Brian has a good price.  I can get them also.

Usually the different terminal locations indicate what amperage they are good for. Don't put one in that is smaller. Bigger is OK.

Those in the pic are both 15 amp regulators.

That is a lot diff ones than I have seen on PK's. The bottom one looks normal if mounted on engine. If mounted behind dash, usually are a bigger more finned box and have big plug to fit to it. OR, have seen some with single plugs on wires too. Ebay  probly has some under Economy Power King search.
