About $100 bucks

Mount on cockpit side of firewall with a 12V computer fan blowing on regulator.

My fan is about 5" diameter wired to master switch.

Have been flying with this regulator for 18 months with no issues after my ducatti burned out.

Heat is the enemy of these regulators.

Did the same thing a year ago/150 hrs. . I used a 30$ amazon clone and a two inch cooling fan that cost about 4$. The power come right off the hot terminal on the regulator. Switched by the master. Charge rate is typically 14.2 volts. Very satisfied so far.
