Pretty much all new regulators will be manufactured by Standard Motor Products, regardless of where you buy them or whose name is on the box, and needless to say they are not as good as the original regulators and require some adjustment when you get them. I try to run the older regulators as long as I can. They require maintenance, but otherwise last almost forever. You can probably un-stick, file, and adjust the contacts on your old regulator.

...or buy a new regulator and adjust it. The new regulators work fine if you adjust them before you use them. They do not come out of the box ready to go.
