Description: Please note that many of the reprints found on internet websites are from ‘bedroom sellers’ at enticingly low prices by individuals that really have no idea what they are selling. Many are nothing more than poor quality, comb-bound photocopies that are scanned and published complete with greasy pages and thumbprints included. In addition, they are often advertised for the incorrect series and/or model years of motorcycles. Conversely, VelocePress.com has been publishing reprints of motorcycle and automobile manuals since 2003 and our publications have earned excellent reviews worldwide so you can be assured you are purchasing a quality product.
198 pages with more than 150 illustrations charts and diagrams, size 8.25 x 10.75 inches. A previously unpublished manual from the Floyd Clymer archives. This manual is a compilation of original factory publications that include the working principals, maintenance, repair, trouble-shooting and testing of Lucas electronic equipment as utilized by the major British motorcycle manufacturers including: A.J.S., B.S.A., Matchless, Norton, Royal Enfield and Triumph.
The factory ‘repair and service’ publications included are as follows: Maintenance instructions for “Electric Lighting and Ignition equipment” and “Alternating Current Equipment” both of which are applicable to the 1950’s (and earlier *) through 1960’s machines, plus the “Motor Cycle Service Manual” for the 1970’s and later models. The compilation of these three publications basically covers machines constructed from the early 50’s up to the unfortunate demise of the British motorcycle industry in the late 70’s. Component maintenance, repair and test data for both 6 volt, and 12 volt, singles, twins and triple cylinder machines are covered and include: Dynamo, Magneto (both face cam and ring cam) Distributor, Coil, Contact Breaker, Battery, Head Lamp, Tail Lamp, Horn, Alternator, Rectifier, Starter Motor, etc. There are also 10 pages of typical wiring diagrams.
In addition, there are two motorcycle “Electric and Suspension Parts” catalogs included that cover 1960 through 1977 Lucas equipped motorcycles. While their primary intention was to provide appropriate Lucas part numbers by motorcycle manufacturer and model, they are of considerable importance during any restoration project, as they serve as a comprehensive parts interchange reference by comparing component part numbers utilized by the various motorcycle manufacturers.
As can be expected from any factory publication, there is adequate detailed text and diagrams making this compilation an invaluable resource for owners and restorers of Lucas equipped motorcycles and we are pleased to be able to offer this reprint as a service to all Lucas equipped British motorcycle enthusiasts worldwide...$24.95 USD
