Please don't sling hot lead my way. Just been lurking on sidelines &reading and occurred to me to ask, beyond the Prince of Darkness origins, what hard specifics of these parts cause them to be unreliable, where millions of others by Auto lite, Delco, Ford, Datsun, on and on, worked for decades? I mean specifics beyond poor workman ship and crappy materials. What details of workmanship and which parts have bad materials and what materials. You get my drift by now. I really want to know exactly what details differ that makes these fail while others work. P.S. I be first to concede electronic more reliable than electromechanical, slip rings better than commutator, BUT that isn't what I'm pleading for amswers about. Thank you and answers from all will be appreciated.

According to my Generator (not Alternator) Man the Lucas gen is fine- it's the regulator that's junk.

when you look at a lucas vreg and genny.

the vreg is the weak link almost always.

they are not sealed well. get dirty inside.. sticky contacts..a nd they corode. you can mitigate it with a lil work.. if working on your tractor doesn't annoy you.

I much prefer ford electrics.

a ford b circuit 12v vreg from a prior diesel will run a lucas genny... etc..
