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.

Ford tests electric-vehicle sounds on Facebook

Mon, 11 Jul 2011

Sure, if it were up to us, every car would sound like a Lamborghini Aventador or a McLaren Formula One race car. And while those specific options aren't available (yet),Ford is using its Facebook page to let fans vote on sounds to be made by the electric Focus. Since EVs are so quiet, Ford needs to give the Focus electric some sound for safety's sake--to draw the attention of people who are blind people, those using cell phones or iPods and even for animals.

McLaren P1 lapping the Nurburgring in UNDER 7 minutes in stunning new video

Thu, 05 Dec 2013

The McLaren P1 laps the Nurburgring in under 7 minutes Ever since Ron Dennis claimed the McLaren P1 would be able to lap the Nurburgring in under seven minutes, we’ve been waiting for McLaren to prove it. (adsbygoogle=window.adsbygoogle||[]).push({});It seems their initial attempts failed to get below the magic 7 minute barrier – unlike the Porsche 918 Spyder which lapped the Nurburgring in 6m 57s – but last month we reported that the P1 seemed to have achieved its goal by going 10 seconds faster than the Porsche in  an almost unbelievable 6 minutes 47 seconds. Unfortunately, we still don’t know officially just how quickly the P1 got round the Nurburgring, but we do now know that it was under 7 minutes thanks to a new video just released by McLaren.
