Locating the voltage regulator on a '71

I am looking to replace the regulator (since most everything else was replaced when fixing my battery drain problem). I believe it's supposed to be up near the radiator mount on the driver's side but I am not having much luck. Can anyone enlighten me?

Yes, you are looking in the right area. Sounds like you have may have a internal voltage regulator within your alternator. A alternator with a internal voltage regulator has a different plug (wider with spades laying down - - ). External regulated alternator has parellel spades (=).
