Have a Lucas question?

When it refers to using glasspaper to "dress" the contacts on the regulator, is glasspaper the same as sandpaper?

Have a look here :

I would go for 800 grid sandpaper to give the contacts some new life.

After using sandpaper or emery-cloth on the regulator points, it
is very important to clean the points, to remove any grit residue.
Same procedure for distributor points.
