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.
