Identifying Lucas Alternators

Featured Posts

Does anyone know how you identify the model type of a Lucas alternator. On mine there are no identifying marks apart from the plastic case at the back saying LUCAS, and Made In England. It has a yellow and a black lead coming from one side, with an unused terminal just above it. On the other side is the thick red cable that goes to the Engine Management system and a smaller yellow lead coming from a separate post. Inside the case there is a rectangular voltage regulator marked Lucas 14v regulator. There's nothing wrong, it's been working fine, it's just I would like to know what type in case I have problems in the future. Thanks in advance!!

A photo will almost certainly get you a close to immediate response.

 

A description will likely get nothing.

A115.

A machine remarkable in my experience for astonishing robustness and long life. Pretty low output though, only 45A.

Any number of more modern alternators with better output will be a simple direct swap if it does ever go tits up, including the inevitable A127. To help identify replacement you have a right hand fitting alternator.

But you can get a tractor regulator for them... This helps a bit.
