Have you tried the new Drafts feature yet? I just lost a long message today and learned my lesson. It is a good idea to save a draft of any long post you are writing. You can then just keep writing and keep saving a draft, knowing you have a backup if there is a glitch. The draft is automatically deleted when you post the message.

Which is the correct or can be used Lucas dynamo for this  ? Was told it may be the Lucas E3HM-LO 6V Clockwise - is that correct ?
Many thanks.


The MK1 is orginal fitted with the "short" dynamo E3HM-LO 6V, you have written. But it has to drive anticlock, because the magneto runs clock wise (looking from drive side).

You can change the drive direction on the dynamo by changing the brushes. To test the drive direction you can "motoring" the dynamo
by connecting D+F and connect 6V + and put - on earth (for Negativ earth on bike).
