1968 Prestolite alternator and regulator questions

I have Prestolite ALE 6207Y 6Z alternator with a Prestolite VHS 5204B-Y Regulator in a 1968 Chris Craft Lancer with a 283 cu in engine. The engine was recently rebuilt and I noticed what I think is an external capacitor/condenser/attenuator on the alternator had a crack in the side of the metal cylinder. It has no part number on it. The pigtail from the unit goes to the B+/ARM post of the alternator and the wire to the battery is screwed to the top of it. Can you tell me what is does, any specs or part number, and where I might get a replacement. Pictures attached.
