Lucas E3L plug - where to get ?.

Here is a photo from a random bike, does anyone know where one could source one of the plugs that plugs into the Generator/dyno ?

It's actually two individual plugs that go on the end of the wire.


These two then go through a bakelite/impregnated fiber washer with three holes: two for the wires and one for a screw in the center.


What you see in the picture is just a rubber boot that goes over the whole lot.


Most parts suppliers have these.  Hope that helps.

The threads in the bakelite dont last very long unfortunately so dont over tighten the screw. You often see the rubber boot on ebay, Roadstar of Dover were selling them for under a couple of quid but often they are near double that. The pin that pushes in, I usually like to solder these onto the end of the wire but they can come out easily, ensure that they are clean and roughend up a little then they should be ok.
