They sell electronic replacement regulators. They are much better than the old relay style

I think the Airtex 1v1038 might be an electronic version that will work on your application. I believe Standard also make one, not sure of the part #. Airtex lists an 800 number, you may want to give them a call.

I needed to replace mine on my 72 chevy pickup and got one at NAPA. They only sell solid stat regulators any more for this truck. Two years ago it was a relay type that failed on me while on vacation.
