I'm pretty sure that a 1984 with MPI (i.e. Turbo setup) had the regulator inside the power module.

Additional: How many wires hook up to the back of your alternator? If it has the FLD connection you have an externally regulated alternator and per my first assumption, it is probably in the Power Module. I only ask this question because there were a few rare instances (so I have been told) that Chrysler used internally regulated alternators, but I believe that was only on the imports which would not be applicable in your case.

Correct! It took me a few minutes to find it. The part # is 5226313 and you see it in this picture at this link (it bolts right on the back of the unit):

Note: there is 1 left at Rock Auto on a mfg closeout for $6. Otherwise you are looking at $50 -$75 (almost the complete cost of the alternator!)

Do a part# search and you should find it. It is Airtex brand (part# 1V1048) and I can't speak for the quality.

Rockauto should have Bosch alternators.
The regulator with brushes is available as seperate part, and Rock Auto has 1 left (manufacturer closeout) for $6 plus shipping. I hope the OP grabs it, but if not you might want to. I doubt that kind of deal will ever come up again. I see the regulator kit on E-Bay for over $50. (Airtex 1V1048).

Good deal and I hope it works out for you. I guess in the industry the terminology is if the regulator mounts on, or is inside the alternator it is called "internally regulated". All others mounted away from the alternator,whether a seperate unit or inside the computer, are called "externally regulated" and there will be seperate field terminal connections on the back of the alternator.
