I have a left over regulator from an alternator. Is there any project i could use it for? Does anyone have any idea

I live in finland so it would be pretty expensive to ship a 20e part, but otherwise id be happy to give it to someone :/Maybe if you were building a Shirley "Cha-Cha" Muldowney AA Fuel Dragster or a Don "The Snake" Prudhomme Funny Car.
Maybe donate it to the "Big Daddy" Don Garlits Museum of Drag Racing here in Ocala
Gee those people/engineers sure could have used your expertise back then. How dare they call a voltage regulator a voltage regulator. It did both, it just wasn't a voltage controller it also controlled the output amperage. Tony 1, mb 0.That module IS NOT a "voltage regulator." It IS an alternator voltage controller. That is quite different. That device adjusts the alternator field current so that the alternator delivers the desired voltage. So by itself it has a very limited purpose. THAT is why I suggested what I suggested.
Isn't that what a regulator does? Control the voltage? Whether by limiting current to the armature of an alternator or by voltage regulation - it accomplishes basically the same thing. Since the alternator's RPM is not a constant, one must regulate the output by either regulating the output or by regulating the input. Higher RPMs means lower current to the armature, thus maintaining a fairly constant voltage for the automobile's electric's.an alternator voltage controller
