    I need a voltage regulator for my garden tractor. Dealer price is $100, 20amp rating.

    Is there some kind of generic voltage regulator which I can get for a lot less than $100 that will work OK in the circuit?

    Will appreciate any info on how to get by for less than the dealer $100.

    have you tried your local napa or car part store?

    You will need to supply make and model # plus the year built, engine size.

    I've picked up a few off ebay for between $8 and $15. The 20A version will be hard to find though. Give a look--Beats $100!

    You can get a Briggs Voltage Regulator number 691185 (old number 394890) new for $70 or find an old one on a junk mower. I have hooked them up to several models of engine besides Briggs. If you are good building such things you can build a 20 Amp model for about $25 or so.

    Are just about any of the solid state ones on Ebay OK for my purpose?
