Voltage regulator

Can anyone tell me where the voltage regulator is located in my car? According to our host, I should have a Marchal 55W Alternator with an external regulator, but where is it? I have a problem where I can drive the car fine for a couple of hours but the next day it won't start. I'll crank the engine and the tach bounces all over the place but the engine won't fire. I'll try a day or two later and it fires. This process repeats itself every time. I've heard faulty regulators will cause the tach to go wild so I want to check it out.
