Same for that box, no indication where it goes. Any suggestions on some good places to mount it?

Homer and Alex got both my spots, ignition between the coils, regulator under the battery.
However, that's an OIF A65. Don't know where to put them on a B44.

OK I think I need to be spoonfed a little on this guys,
lets look at the VR first. I have the battery mount and the VR bracket.

Included in pic is the electronic ignition, lets set that aside for now.

Dave,If you are calling that box on the right a regulator,you should be aware that it looks Exactly like a Pacifico battery eliminator. Jack

A lot of the answers refer to an A65 which you do not have, as you can see from the pics below the battery tray on a B44 3 bolts drop down to a couple of support brackets which stop you mounting boxes below the battery tray unless they fit between the 2 brackets plus it does get mucky there. I mount the regulator where the orginal rectifier went which is behind the toolbox where the red wires are exiting your harness (which I use for the earth for the regulastor), I also fit the capacitor in the same area. Unless you are fitting an oversize capacitor like I do there should also be enough room to fit the electronic ignition, downside is to get to the boxes the seat has to come off by loosening the 2 top shock bolts. I prefer the electronic box to be near the coil (or coils if twin sparked) so go for the gussets behind the headstock but it can go further back as the wires from the timing chamber normally run back to the orginal postion for the now redundant points condensor just up from the rear engine mounting bolt.

Battery Eliminator? WTH is that? I was told it was a VR. That is why I am on bb.com I guess! Thanks Jack.
Do I need it? What does it do?

I am reading elsewhere to discard the battery eliminator. I already have a battery anyway and plan to keep it in that configuration. Some say the B.E. may cause damage to other electrical components like the rectifier.

Dave, If you don't want it, I believe Leon Bee might take it off your hands. Jack

Jack, it is not mine to give but I will ask the owner. Might sit on it til the project is complete. Nothing will be thrown away regardless.
