External voltage regulator

I thought the alternator I was running had an internal voltage regulator but it does not. Alt is a DL 7078DP.

Does anyone have a chart to show me where and how to wire in the voltage regulator for this system?

I am clueless and Im thinking the guy behind the autozone counter might be as well. Thanks

I think its interesting that I ran the truck with the other engine ( F.I 302 ) and never had an issue, any comments on why I didnt get into trouble there?

I did a little bit of searching on Google, used your part number. I came up with this page: Google

Try a google search using your year and model of truck, I used a 78 Bronco. Do you have the wires/harness for the alternator? A trip to the wrecking yard might be an easy way to figure this out. Good luck, Dan

BTW, you can go to Autozone's website and look up wiring diagrams for your vehicle if you know the year and make of the part(s). They have a lot of info besides wiring too...
