Hello all, I haven't been here for a long time due mainly to some personal hardships which are better now. I need ignition condensers for a '68 A65L. Is it possible to get some that will work from a local auto parts store. I found the Lucas part #54420128. I'm sure I can't get the Lucas stuff locally, but maybe something by another manufacturer such as Bosch, Daiichi, Delco, etc.? Thanks in advance for any replies.
I used a couple of radio ones ......i dont recall the micro farhet (?) value of them but someone more electrically in the know than me could assist with that . The ones i did use were REFER brand which amused me (so dont fear the refer) , the are supposedly "self healing" what ever that means electronically .....anyway i put them in my A65 maybe 10 years back and so far so good .....best part was a packet of 10 cost about $5 from the electronic hobby type place
Since they only have a single strand copper wires coming out of them i mounted them in such a way that vibration wouldnt cause the wire to bust off
mine are mounted under the seat so dont know if the radio type ones would be practical if the bike has the capcitor mounted on the points plate?
another point is that they are also ok for using in magnetos ive been told
