    regulator and rectifier.

    Is it possible to ditch the separate regulator and rectifier and get the combined product? If so how would you match that up with the existing wiring?

    Should be if one is available. In fact the early DOHC does exactly that but cannot say if one will work as the alt amp rating is higher on those than on the SOHC. A compare of a '78 K wiring diagram with a '79 K in the regulator area should show very close to what is needed.

    The switch to modern electronic switching instead of breaker points in the regulator itself is of far greater value there.

    I am using the regulator off of a 79 dohc on my sohc. Basically the same one that you see sold as aftermarket universal regulators.
