As long as I can remember, Lucas automotive electrical components have engendered both positive and negative comments.
Some of the negative comments are:
* The Lucas motto: Get home before dark.
* Lucas is the patent holder for the short circuit.
* Lucas Inventor of the first intermittent wiper.
* Lucas Inventor of the self-dimming headlamp.
* The three position Lucas switch Dim, Flicker and Off.
* The Original Anti-Theft Device Lucas Electrics.
* Lucas is an acronym for Loose Unsoldered Connections and Splices
* Lucas systems actually uses AC current; it just has a random frequency.
* I have had a Lucas pacemaker for years and have never had any trou
* If Lucas made guns, wars would not start
My USA mate has owned British cars and motor bikes over the decades and recently came across a set of Lucas Electric Test Cards from the 1970's. The full set may be downloaded from the following links:
Lucas Test Card 1 Diagnosing Ignition System
Lucas Test Card 2 Diagnosing the Starting System
Lucas Test Card 3 Diagnosing A.C. Charging Systems
Lucas Test Card 4 Diagnosing D.C. Charging Systems
Lucas Test Card 5 Diagnosing Opus Electronic Ignitions
Lucas Test Card 6 Diagnosing Constant Energy Electronic Ignition
Certainly worth keeping.............

Some might be amused by this humorous take on an eBay auction, with Q&A at the end, for the Lucas Smoke Replacement Kit.
