A technical forum for all matters electrical
Hi , can anyone tell me if the two wires that connect to the Lucas magdyno have a soldered connection or is it crimped ?
Hi looking for a battery for my Dads Norton 650 1963. I've already ordered a battery but its to big.
any help would be great?
In the 1950s Lucas changed from Negative Earth to Positive Earth with regard to motorcycle electrics WHY??
There is going to be lots of guesses to this-I can guess better than most, but I want the real answer if anyone might know??
The change from Dynamo to alternator came just after this so there was several years overlap-so not the real answer.
I am looking for advice in a good quality H4 lens / reflector - my correct original Lucas BPF lamp is just too pathetic and scary at night.
I keep hearing about the Cibie Z-beam as being a top-quality classic lens, but it's hard to find, and does look a little odd, especially on a very original '50s bike. Is this better than the current Cibies, which are normal convex items?
How do the Lucas, Wipac, Cibie, Hella etc compare?
I would be interested to know of experiences with full LED inserts as well.
Does anyone have an ‘L’ points plate for sale?
Or does anyone know where I can get an ‘L’ points plate.
I do have a spare points plate, but it is not marked.
Does anyone have a picture of an ‘L’ points plate?
My 1959 '99' is 6V and I intend using it mainly in the daytime so I've restored it as per original with a new PRS 8 switch and alternator stator and rotor. Is it worth me upgrading to 12V, considering that I'll be using low current LED lights? I also have NOS 6 Volt Fiamma windtone horns in black instead of the usual red - not that easy to find!
I've fixed my charging issue - I was lucky - the bullet was protruding from the connector - easy I thought, but...
I have now run into a self inflicted issue, somehow I've cocked up my battery connections! For info, I'm running positive earth & I've never touched the cabling so I'm hoping it still looks 'standard' if you refer to the attachment:
I attached cables A, B & C to the positive terminal (A comes up from beneath the airbox on the left of the photo; B & C come down from the loom at the top left of the battery area)
