That looks neat and tidy wilko, is that the complete unit with armature inside? Kind of looks like it takes a flywheel type commutator over the top? A mate mentioned a Kubota unit a while back.

 Thanks Baz, some of those sound a bit agricultural but I like the idea of the dummy shaft, maybe with a kubota unit, or else I reckon a Guzzi one would also work that way I can interchange if need be, but I like the idea of a brushless unit!
hmmmm!!
   

 cheers for now, duTch

Yes the magnetized rotor bolts on around the stator and the original lucas housing over the lot.

Yup thanks Wilko them's the words I was looking for,

, Presume the 'Lucas cover' is the 'weather cover' superfluous to my needs, but will source a local dealer and see what they have, I'd like to keep it british if I can(for some dumb reason?) or bosch. Could be a while before I do anything, priority to get back  on the road!!
