The XK 120 production started with Lucas starter motor 26042D or E which was replaced in the period March to November 1950 by the later Lucas 26062A starter. I guess there will be less than 1000 engines that have this starter motor. Two questions:
- Does anyone have a good photo of this early starter 26042 including the original “Rubber Coupling” drive assembly 291105? Could be placed on the forum here or sent directly via PM to me.
- Has the 26042 starter motor a wider cover band with a “cut-away” section, compared to the (smaller) cover band of the 26062? According various Lucas part manuals the 26042 has cover band 271578 with a cut-away section, possibly for easier access to the brushes.
Thanks in advance and regards,
