Landrover voltage regulator?

So. I proved conclusively that my rectifier is just that. 16V at idle, up to 19V at anything above...

I thought i saw a solid state regulator for land rovers son t_net, but subsequent searches only get the old Lucas relay thing.

Can any of you rover heads point me in the right direction, or did i just dream i saw it?

Surely if its been built in the last 30 years it will be in the back of the alternator.

Aye that's the thing. I can only assume this solid state thing is a modern aftermarket spare to replace the clunky old Lucas relay.

Problem is i still can't find where i found it again!

Problem Solved. - and the eclectic mix of my boat increased.

Reg / Rectifier off a Honda 50 on it's way! (Thanks Colin)


And in case this thread is found by Landrover owners on google in 5 year's time, I found the link(s) and yes, kits to convert the 1950s Lucas electromechanical device into solid state do exist, although Triumph & Moggie owners seem to prefer them as they fit inside the old casing & keep it looking original. The landy ownwers seem to prefer function over form!

There are also lots of lower power ones for classic motorbikes.
