    Does anyone have a chart of what the Lucas RM series alternator, stators and rotors put out over the years?

    Can we ask with what purpose in mind ? - reduce the need for long rambling answers that may not address the issue.

    Well, I have a Scott with a 6v Miller alternator , its ready to give up the smoke, Millers are not available the Lucas's are drop ins. However the drive is wonky, like the Brits would say so I need to find a new old stock early Lucas 6v ,3 wire ,stator and rotor that has the least amount of drag ( lowest power).The alternator has to be three wire to be wired without an regulator, which is to say switch regulated.

    I agree with Rohan that this thread will become long and confusing.

    For a start, I think you're wrong about what you think you need.

    Talk to these guys:

    Is there someone here that knows the output difference between a RM15 and a RM19?

    I don't suppose it would be a difficult rewinding job.

    Are the coils shorting to earth at the moment?
