I have an 84 4000S that I am using as a parts car.  Do the components 
interchange.  They "appear" to be identical.  If I am not mistaken, I 
should be able to remove 2 small screw to replace the regulator??  I am 
not really into replacing the alternator while it still works and is not 
real pleasant outside.  I wish the thing would just die or something. 
	When removing the regular, no brushes or springs are going to 
jump out at me are they??
