Default Lucas Magneto ID

Hi, I`m new to Smokestak, so I hope this is the correct proceedure. I have acquired a Lucas Magneto, type ADL or AD1 92C and serial/part number 627. Driving it is a 44 tooth cog w/advance drive dog built into it. I`m looking for the outlet plastic/Bakerlite lead connection and I believe it holds a carbon brush. Can anyone perhaps ID and take an guess what its from?
Thanks Jon Gregg South Australia.

Hi Jon,
I am not familiar with this magneto. Any chance of a pic or 2 so we may be able to help out just a little bit better?

Give Maggyman a try:

Hope this helps.

It sounds like it's an AD1 magneto; they date from the 1920's and were one of the first magnetos Lucas made. If it is, the lead-out will look a bit like this one?

The photo from Craig Gillingham is correct. Mine is in a very fine condition but for the missing HT "fitting". I guess finding a suitable replacement is going to be a stretch...I can possibly fabricate one. Craig, would you send me a detailed measurement ie., head and shoulder to base plus carbon pick up width.
Thanks for all members help. Regards Jon.

Jon, I think I sold that magneto a long time ago (sorry). However, I believe the Thompson-Bennett AD1 magneto is very similar, if not the same. I have a theory that Lucas took over the making of T-B magnetos. I'll check a couple of books tonight. Reproduction lead-outs used to be available in Europe, I'm not sure if they still are, but I'll have a look.

UPDATE:, I found the website, they are 13EUR from this place. I'll check to see if they are the same.
