Lucas C45

This 12V Dynator unit replaces the Lucas C45 and is available with or without the rear mounted tachometer drive and for both negative and positive earth applications. It has an output of 50A compared to 25A of the original and weighs 3.2kg, compared to 6.0kg originally. A high output version (65A) is also available.

To ensure that the dynamo on your vehicle is a C45, it should be stamped with 'C45' on the case. If you cannot find this, check the distance between the mounting flanges, it should be approximately 166mm and the diameter of the body 4.5" (114mm).

  • Diameter 4.5" (114mm)
  • Internal mounting flange distance (Dim A) 166mm
  • Shaft diameter 17mm
  • 50A output (standard unit)
  • 3.2Kg
  • 3 year guarantee

As standard, units are supplied fitted with cooling fan and 63mm diameter pulley suitable for 10mm wide ('Z' section) belt.If a different pulley is required, then please enquire. Alternatively, use your original pulley on the new unit as the shaft sizes are the same diameter (17mm).

It should also be noted that a shorther version of the C45 is also available. (This is a much rarer unit and was only used by a few manufacturers in the late 50's and early 60's).

Electrical connection to the vehicle is easy and straight forward using the original dynamo control box as a junction box. Fitting instructions are given in the downloads section below (one for negative earth installations, the other for positive earth). Alternatively, the original voltage control box can be removed and replaced with a fused dummy control box, which can be used as a suitable junction box to easily connect the Dyantor to the vehicles wiring.
