Does an 86 have an external regulator inside the engine bay on the driver's side?

I know some were internally regulated... These are like $25.

What a shame to see the car get to this state of repair for a simple and sub $500 repair...

Good 'on ya for seeking out the car and bringing it back. This is pretty similar to my 77 911 when I got it... neglected but had good bones and everything was repairable. In the case of my car the 'trusted mechanic' was incompetent and had the CIS so badly out of tune it would hardly run - the PO got fed up and sold it cheap.
