where is the voltage regulator

WHERE IS THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR?

My battery light was on for a couple days, then it wouldn't start. Auto zone tested the batteries and they were bad; replaced both. Battery light was still on and now it won't start again. I have heard low batteries will fry the voltage regulator/alternator. I am planning to get the alternator tested and will replace it if bad. WHERE IS THE VOLTAGE REGULATOR? I've heard on some, it's built into the alternator? I have a 99 F350 SD DRW with a 7.3L turbo diesel. Single alternator.

Thanks for the quick reply, I'll get the new alternator ordered, go retrieve my flashlight and tools and quit looking for the voltage regulator! Thanks again

Got er' fixed

Just wanted to thank everyone for their quick responses. I got a new alternator, recharged both new batteries that I had drained because of the bad alternator, and am up and running again. No battery light, no problems so far. Thanks a ton
