As to AC voltage I know how tat goes, I had to wire up voltage regulator on my ATK it uses AC and plowed 3 headlight bulbs before I got it right. The manual was wrong on the schematic.
If you already have rectifier and regulator, I would hang a battery across the line to protect from high voltage spikes and from low voltage at idle if I were going to run a several hundered doller electronic think on the circuit. If not a battery, at least a very large capacitor.
