Is this what your looking for... https://www.summitracing.com/parts/smp-vrc601?seid=srese1&cm_mmc=pla-google-_-shopping-_-srese1-_-standard-motor-products&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI7LHsgoeL4gIVF9lkCh23YgUHEAQYBCABEgIMYfD_BwE
Not sure where it's made.

These guys have a superior electronic unit... https://redlinegaugeworks.com/ Their website sucks... just give them a call.
It's a little pricier, but not by much more. And it's made here in the good ol' USA. And they guarantee it.

If you are able to wire and solder your own circuits, you can easily convert the old one to solid state, or retrofit a more modern regulator on there.

OH, i'm real good with soldering- even copper pipe if need be and making wiring adapters, but I don't have a grasp on electronics

Google around a bit, there should be some good tutorials online for converting the old ones to new tech or tossing the old one and wiring in something new.  Years ago I converted the one on my '72 Charger with a few parts from Radio Shack and a little time.  It took longer to pry the metal casing away from the circuit board than it did to do the conversion.  The tutorial I followed showed me exactly what to buy and how to connect it all.

Rick Erinberg from Mopar Action did an article a while back on how to.
It's in here somewhere... http://www.moparaction.com/tech/
He does some of the best Mopar tech out there.

I remember the article, I have that is a box of magazines here somewhere, lol. Couldn't find it online but I did see where E-berg answered a question and recommended these:

https://www.rt-eng.com/index.php/RTE_limiter.html

Expensive, but they look really nice and a lot more sophisticated than my old resistor conversion.

That's what Redline Gauge Works has. I'm not sure on their price but they are really good to deal with and recommend them.
