Voltage regulator condenser?

Hello
On my 63 voltage regulator there is a lead from the wiring harness connector that goes to a grounding condenser.
It looks like a condenser as there is no number left on it. I can't find any reference in the manual for this item or in any parts catalog.
It crumbled when I unbolted it to replace the voltage regulator.
Any thought to it's purpose, what it actually is or a replacement part?
Thanks
Nagel

Hi Nagel,
It is a Radio Noise Suppression Condenser.
If you hear a whine in your radio that follows RPM it is used to suppress that noise.
If you don't hear it I wouldn't worry about it.
