Control box malfunction

Have a Lucas question?

I've had those old generators wear--the bearings on the shaft had worn enough to become eccentric (somewhere I have a picture of mine) and then the brushes were no longer able to function properly, and wore out very quickly. Perhaps something similar has happened to yours?

No the bearings are fine. I haven't put a meter on the windings yet but I am suspicious about those. Much more pressing problems to sort out at the moment!
