Originally, there was a piece of phinolic/resin cardboard covering the
regulator, to help protect it from shorting out. Over the years, these
cracked or were removed by various unknowing owners and mechanics.
Nowdays, just a good heavy piece of vinyl or rubber should do the trick.
The problem with the new solidstate regulator, is that it needs a little
ventilation to help cool it.
