The Voltage Regulator (Part # 815279 4) started smoking when motor was running good. I shut the engine off once I saw the smoke. Pulled the cover & saw heave gray smoke procedding from Voltage Regulator. I attempted to restart after engine cooled down. I live in Louisiana it was about 90 Degrees that day. I think it may have been an over heating condition causing the failure, but I am not sure. Any advice from this Forum would be helpful as to info on part replacement, average cost of repairs, should a diagnostics test be performed (to discover any other unseen problems)as well as advice on good qualified DIY video's on how to remove & replace bad parts. Thank You for any advise give.
