Lucas C40 Type Dynamo - New

Part Number: LRD100
£70.80 inc. VAT In stock

Brand new Lucas C40 Type dynamo made by Lucas TRV in India.

The Dynalite offers around 80% more power whilst at the same time reducing weight by about 40%. Not only do you get the advantages of an alternator but reliability is improved even further as the control box is no longer needed and can be removed or just bypassed if you want to retain the under bonnet look of your classic car.

Dynalite Benefits
• Every single Dynalite has been designed, built and tested on the vehicle by Auto Electricians, with specialist knowledge of Classic British and European cars.
• The Dynalite has been purposely designed to look exactly like the original unit, for those who want increased performance but wish to keep the authentic, original appearance of their car.
• The Dynalite performs like a modern alternator, and will charge across all rev ranges.
• The Dynalite will produce up to 40 amps – a huge increase on the original unit, sometimes as high as 40%.
• Approximately half the weight of the original dynamo.
• All units supplied with a wiring diagram and comprehensive fitting instructions.
• All units are supplied with a one year warranty

This is a brand new, not a reconditioned dynamo, available as an outright purchase (we don't require your old one back). All new dynamo's are configured for Negative earth, but can easily be re-polarised. Please contact us for information if you are not familiar with how to achieve this. You will need to swap your existing dynamo pulley to this new unit. A new pulley retaining nut, spring washer and woodruff key are included.
