Voltage regulator replacement

OK, So I bought a Duralast VR715 regulator from Autozone.

It is way thinner that the Echlin that I am replacing. Couple of questions:

1. Do I need to re-use the "Capacitor" (noise suppression) that was located on the old regulator?

2. Do I need to order a new "mounting kit" as the old one (rubber pieces) were destryoed in the removal of the old regulator--or can I mount directly to the firewall using run of the mill nuts and bolts?

Thanks in advance

Re: Voltage regulator replacement

Thinner is because it's solid-state.... not mechanical.

The new regulator takes care of the suppression itself.
Mount it right on the core support but make sure it's grounded well (bare metal to metal).

Re: Voltage regulator replacement

If you want to replace the rubber nuts you can pick them up at Lowe's. The rubber nuts may let air under it so it could work cooler.
