We need to replace our old homebrew voltage regulator. This
car has an alternator but is still positive ground. Need not be OEM
type! Looking for dependable yet cheap solution. Could build my own
from plans if anybody has a schematic. Thanks.

Positive Ground Alternators are very rare but Jaguar did fit them to some
cars around 1968 - and they used a seperate regulator box - but you might
struggle to find one now.

ps Does anyone know WHY most cars built before about 1965 were positive
ground and most after were negative ? What caused everyone to change ?

Why don?t you change chassis to negative ground? All you have to do is to
swap the four wires inside the fuel gauge. A bit tricky but you won?t have
any trouble to find a new voltage regulator or to put in you new radio...
