Unhappy Leeds on Voltage regulator m189

Looking for a regulator to fit car any numbers I can cross reference or parts houses where I can find one.

Any Delco-Remy (General Motors standard) voltage regulator from the pre-alternator days 50-60's will mount correctly and function perfectly.

The trick is to swap the positions of the #1 and #3 terminals from the Bosch (expensive well built) unit to the Delco.(cheapo) unit. #2 is #2 no change.

Look up an old Delco wiring chart and an old Mercedes = same charging and starting system.

Interesting huh?
The early brake systems internal parts were inches.
Tires world over are inches.
