Things you never knew about Lucas spare parts for cars

Came across some interesting article about car parts made by British company Lucas.
Especially their Q and A section makes for great reading.
Enjoy!

Thanks for this RBS !!

Excellent read!

Immediately brought back "fond" memories of the many lost hours trying to keep alive my 1972 Triumph Tiger motorcycle back then that had this exact problem with its' Lucas electrics.

Ahh...if I'd only known about the secret factory "fix", I would have reclaimed all that wasted time by riding instead of cursing :D .

Regards.

Thanks, enjoyed the article and comments. Wish I had the kit back when my 1968 BSA 650 Lightning electrics went out while coming down from the Smoky Mountains at dusk. Smokey indeed. Then there was my '62 Midget...
