Replacing voltage Regulator?

Patrick Fairbairn

Asked by Sep 27, 2015 at 05:18 PM about the 1987 Lincoln Mark VII LSC

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My voltage regulator, and alternator are
bad. I need to replace the V. Regulator first,
but I have no idea where it is. The car keeps
draining the battery in a week of operation.
P.s. the voltage regulator is a separate part
than the alternator in my Mark Vii
