You may not be able to swap out the reg on your alternator...I had to get a reman (about $250 back then) when mine went out.

I too measured 17.5V. In my case, the battery was venting, and I could smell (and feel in my eyes) the acid in the air as I drove.

The next step would have been the battery exploding! Fortunately, I stopped driving it that day until I could swap out the alternator...
