The 'Alternative' product option is a newly manufactured set of points for the Lucas 20D8 distributor. Extensive development work has been carried out to ensure that these points exactly duplicate those manufactured by Lucas Industries in the 1950̥s and 1960̥s.
The product that has been available recently suffers from a few shortcomings, which we have overcome working in conjunction with a leading UK ignition specialist. The contacts enclosed herewith are equipped with a fibre heel, which duplicates the original Tufnol heel in the Lucas distributor and replaces the plastic one on the recently made product. The spring is an 18-24 oz. strength, exactly as original. In addition, the contacts points are of equal size, which is important for good alignment of the contact surfaces, whereas recent product has had one item over sized to overcome alignment problems.
The dimensions of the metal base plate, size and alignment of holes have been reproduced as they were when originally manufactured, which had not been correctly reproduced in more recent versions of the same product. Where appropriate, fibre washers have been used to replace cheaper, plastic washers.
We believe this product is the best available in the current market place anywhere in the world.We hope that it shows our continued commitment to reproducing high quality components for Rolls Royce and Bentley motor vehicles.
