Hi @bozmandan ,
Here’s a link to the relevant page in the service manual that describes how to test the regulator. The following two pages elaborate on how to test the rectifier.
They’re probably combined in the same housing.
Admittedly it doesn’t state where the regulator/rectifier unit is actually located but it must be very close to or a part of the alternator. There should be 5 wires attached to the rectifier, Yellow, White/Red and White/ Blue from the alternator, Red from the battery and Black/White from earth and also a Green/White coming from the alternator as well which goes into the regulator section. so it should be easy to spot.
Hopefully this is of some help
