Sorry to disagree on this minor point. But both LOTS of Mopars and
GM's used low-side regulation. So did my Datsun, which now has a
Mopar regulator on the firewall now....
Many Delco alternators had/have a "full field test tab" where you
stuck a screwdriver in and grounded a test point to bypass the
regulator and make it work full-bore.
I've been told Fords regulated the upper side but I never worked
