[Healeys] Generator to Alternator conversion - BJ8

I am converting my 67 BJ8 Healey from a generator to an alternator.  A 1980
MGB alternator will be used because it has the required 3/8 pulley (and
because I currently have one that is new).


My questions is, does the 1980 MGB alternator have an internal voltage
regulator or does it use an external regulator?  If internal, I will need to
change the wiring.  If external, am I correct that no wiring changes will
need to be made, other than to insure the BJ8 has been converted to a
negative ground.


Thanks in advance!
