Don't forget to check/recharge the battery and polarize the regulator/generator. If you just replace the reg, it won't necessarily charge until the field is polarized.

I bought a car with a battery that was over 6 years old and I charged it and the car worked fine for a couple of weeks. One night I drove to a car cruise and back, it wouldn't go into park and slid down the driveway. The car wouldn't start, I had to jump it. I charged the battery over night and it was 13.3 V. I checked it later that day and it was 12.5 V. I took it in and got it checked it, was bad, but it kind of held a charge. I will be buying a new battery. Check yours out too.
