Bob,does IVR mean instrment voltage regulator ? If so,thats what Ford calls the constant voltage regulator. The 6V Ford gauges did not use an IVR or CVR.only the 12V models. As you say, the CVR or solid state voltage regulator can be mounted in a more accessible spot as long as it can be connected to ground and the other two terminals connected inline in the common wire that powers all three guages.
I suggested using the CVR as it is sized for enough power to feed all three Ford guages,while the Ford site link advised using at least two solid state regulators with not more than 2 guages on each so as not to overload them.
