Hi Don, ZL1THO

I have used a variable voltage regulator MC1460 back in 1973 to get
a precise +3.6 V at 0.5 A for my homebrewed  APT receiver.

Looking back in my papers I have found the schematic diagram and the
9 pin connections.

I will send to you a scanned copy of it.

By the way in my circuit:

Pin 3 = unregulated input = +20 volt DC

Pin 1 is connected to pin 4 via a 0.8 ohm limiting resistor 

Pin 4-5 connected in parallel = regulated voltage +3.6 volt DC

The above variable voltage regulator was a most early in 1973 but if it
failed and having the pin connections of it  you can replace a MC1460 
with a LM317 with minor circuit changes.
