Ignition parts for Vintage and Classic Lucas type Distributors

We stock a comprehensive range of ignition components for Lucas-type distributors, with 1000s of mainly British vehicle applications up to 1990. The complete range includes coils - with 6V and 12V, acorn and push-fit, standard and sports options; condensers – a wide selection with premium options from the Distributor Doctor range and exclusive products including recently remanufactured condenser plate, Lucas part number 409613, with many British car applications from 1939 to 1957; contact sets – over 30 types including high-quality sets manufactured in period style with original fibre heels; distributor caps – over 50 sorts, with difficult to find caps and premium options featuring high specification materials and brass inserts; rotor arms – over 30 kinds, with many premium options from the Distributor Doctor as well as newly remanufactured arms including original Lucas part numbers 404923, 403866 and 403865; brushes, bearings, bushes, driving dogs and cap clips – a comprehensive selection of service items necessary to properly rebuild your distributor, many remanufactured to their original specification in the UK.

To help you identify the correct parts for your distributor we have created the most complete ignition product search database available online. The search currently includes information on distributors and vehicle applications up to 1960, though in future will be expanded to include applications up to 1990. In each parts category, you can search by Lucas distributor number (marked on the distributor body), distributor type or vehicle Make, Model & Year, for original applications published by Lucas. When searching for a product e.g. a rotor arm, you will also be presented with the other ignition products used in the application that accompany the rotor arm. On occasion, there may be two options for a component suggested - where the distributor changed over the period of production. Please study the photographs of the parts and the item descriptions to confirm they match the parts you are seeking to replace. While every effort has been made to provide accurate search information, it is important to check all product information. If you require any assistance with your selection then please get in touch.

BMC 1.5 Litre Diesel

The BMC 1.5 litre diesel engine is based on the 1.5 litre (1,489 cc) B-Series four-cylinder petrol engine. It was used in the Austin A60 and proved a popular base engine for marinising and for generator set applications. Marinised versions include the Thornycroft 90 and 90/2 engines, the Tempest Newage Captain and the Westerbeke Four-90 & W30. The marinised engines are extensively used in narrow boats. Classic Engine Parts has remanufactured a number of major parts for these engines and offers virtually all categories of spares to assist with their maintenance and rebuild.
