Tips For Mounting Voltage Regulator Inside Belt Drive

Anything I should know out of the ordinary as far as mounting my regulator inside my Ultima Belt Drive? Anything I should or shouldn't do?
Thanks
BH

As long as you have it in a place where air can flow across it you shouldnt have any problems. I usually put the regulator under the engine and mount the ignition coil on the back of the primary.

Use some spacer so its off the plate. Even with spacers I went through 3 reg in 18 months. I put it up front, no more problems.

I'm not suggesting not to do it, its worked for many.

Why spacers? Heat, Vibration or something else.....

You need air flow to keep the regulator cool.

Yeah, there's a reason why they mount em up front. The spacers will keep it off the plate and hopefully cooler.
