Question Part Identification Help

I have been given the job of rewiring a Pitts I have a share in and could do with some help in identifying the type and output of the alternator and what the gold box is? Initially I though it was a regulator but the wire don't look big enough, maybe some type of noise suppressor.

Thanks

That's a voltage regulator in the box. +12v wire, voltage sense wire (from bus), and field wire. Looks just like a cardinal setup.

Aerhed is correct, it is an older voltage regulator and was manufactured by Lamar. All of their units today are solid state and much smaller.

Thanks for the replies so far, that is one mystery cleared up. Anyone have any ideas about the make and output of the alternator?
