Ammeter O ring

Postby MalcW » Sun Jan 03, 2021 3:05 pm

Hi, does anyone know if the rubber O ring that sits under the ammeter is available from the club spares? I couldn't see it.

Thanks,

Malc

You could use a carb “O” ring for this application.

Not aware there was an o ring under the original Lucas ammeters, Some aftermarket ones have them fitted though.

Hi

They're listed in the Lucas documentation as part of the ammeter installation.

523986 is the part number but dammed if I can find any listing of one in the master spares manuals.

My original ammeter, which appears to have died, has an 'O' ring with a very small cross section. It's very brittle and broke up when trying to remove it, which makes me suspect it's probably original.

I know it's in the Lucas cat but what I'm trying to say is that it was never listed as an individual part by the factory and therefore couldn't be ordered separately. Now if there is enough demand we could look to stock but more than likely it's better to use clear silicone as that won't rot or go brittle.
