you either hunt down a power module or wire an external regulator in.

Not sure on an 85 but if the bolt is the same as the others it is 8mm x 1.25 x 4" threaded all the way up.
You cannot replace the regulator, you have to replace the PM or install an external regulator.

I'm getting tired of that link.

First off the two wires on the external regulator do matter which gets hooked up to what. Hooking them up backward will damage the external regulator.

next don't just piggy back it on top of the now non fuctioning regulator in the computer. Issue could happen if the computer starts to work again or better yet if it starts to do the other thing a bad regulator in a computer does over charge! Pick ONE way to regulate the alternator and use just the one.

I'm not going to read that again list more issues.

If you want to go the route of an external regulator we can help but without that link. Also keep in mind going with an external regulator can cause you to set a code and turn on your engine light. It seems it doesn't always happen but some have reported it does happen. No one to my knowledge has figured out a fix either.
