Anyone know what could be causing my regulators (Link Here) to fail? Perhaps I'm drawing too much current?

I have a new battery.

Failure Mode: One of the rectifier diodes fail (no forward bias current)

Hypothesis1: I'm drawing too much current during long drives and when I keep my incandescent light on
Hypothesis2: The regulator is unable to handle the large ac voltages from the stator

I'm going to try a 'larger' engine rectifier(This one), maybe that will fix this.

If anyone has any ideas or insight, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
