Voltage Reg Ground Wire?

I am fitting my voltage reg to the rad support, and as far as I know, it has a ground wire. (I bought one as # CA01655 through Classic.)

However, I am unable to see in the AIM where it mounts the reg or rad support.
The only clue is in UPC 12 in the schematic diagram. It shows a ground wire from the top center mounting screw of the reg. -but where on the rad support does it ground to? The diagram is unclear.

This restored COPO offers no clues either.


Also. does anyone have the capacitor fitted for the U63 radio option? I am attempting to install this as well but cannot see anywhere on the voltage reg for it to plug into. There is no connection on the reg where the AIM suggests it to plug into. (Yes I am installing the C60-A/C option.)


Thanks guys.

Re: Voltage Reg Ground Wire?

Hmm.. Because 69s use self tappers to mount the voltage reg (creating a ground), perhaps the ground wire is not required.
The 67-68s that use the insulating rubber well-nuts clearly show the ground wire installation.
This is UPC6 B6 of the '68 AIM.

Maybe this is answering my question.

Still, any info you guys have is greatly appreciated.

This is also from the 68 AIM..

Maybe I have the wrong voltage reg.. I definitely do not have a connection for the capacitor to plug onto, but I do have the threaded hole to mount the ground wire.

Re: Voltage Reg Ground Wire?

Steve, the capacitor plugs onto a male 1/4" terminal that is on the backside of the regulator, it would point down if the reg is held in it's normal orientation.

The capacitor attaches to the "inboard" side of the reg base with a small sheet metal screw. The ground wire has a ring terminal which attaches to the reg with the same screw, and attaches to the rad support to a predrilled hole just above the 2 holes where a non RS washer bottle mounts. I am unsure of if the ground wire is used on 69, it is used on 67-68.

It's all detailed pretty well here: rad support-regulator-What it is, Where it is
The 67 & 68 pics I have there show the ground wire, the 2 69 pics do not.

As far as I know, the correct capacitor is no longer available. I used a cap normally used at the coil, and spliced on the correct connector borrowed from a temp sender wire.

Thanks Jim, yes I do have the capacitor connection.. not quite where the AIM was pointing, which is why I must have missed it.

However, this is true of 67-68s, the 69s definitely use one of the outboard mounting screws.
The wire on my capacitor unfortunately is not long enough for the C60 location shown here.


Anyway, I sort that out.. Thanks a heap for your info and that link.
