Mercruiser 3.7l 470 170 165 488 190 Voltage Regulator Passes Diode Tests on


Weymouth, Massachusetts, United States

Weymouth, Massachusetts, United States
Working rectifier / voltage limiter off motor that blew a rod. Diodes [these units have two] test OK.
Brand:MerCruiser Country/Region of Manufacture:United States Manufacturer Part Number:99502A13

Good used 'voltage regulator' off MerCruiser 3.7 liter [224 cubic inch] aluminum block 4-cyl  engine  Motor was in production from 1976 to 1991 with model numbers 470, 170, 165, 488, 190, and 3.7LX.  While commonly termed the 'voltage regulator' it is in actuality a voltage RECTIFIER [AC-to-DC conversion] and a voltage LIMITER for the charging system; it doesn't actually 'regulate' the stator output since that has permanent magnets.  Whatever you call it, it's an expensive dealer part - over $500 - and still expensive from aftermarket sources like CDI Electronics; last aftermarket price I saw on these is $324. This one was pulled from a blown-up engine and the rectifier diodes are working so it's good for continued service at a cheap price.

Driven: Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback

The C-segment is one of the most important sectors of the automotive market, with every mainstream manufacturer having at least one car competing within. From Alfa Romeo's Giulietta through to the Lexus CT200h and Volvo's C30, there really is a car for everyone. So, in a potentially saturated marketplace, what can a Chevrolet hatchback offer above and beyond a nostalgic name and a tenuous link to an American heritage?

Buying advice doesn't come more pragmatic than this: if you want a brand new car for the least possible amount of money, then this is your next drive. It's the new Dacia Sandero, which has been officially priced at £5995. That's £2000 less than the cheapest Citroen C1, and £3800 less than a similarly-sized Ford Fiesta.  Exactly how much car do I get for a fiver under six grand?
