    Could anyone point me in the direction of a supplier of Lucas dynamos that do an exchange service?

    Lots of UK company do exchange dynamos, like ESM Morris Minors for example.
    Don't know of any Irish companies off hand

    Obviously you have one yourself to exchange and I assume you need a refurbished one, so why not bring your one to an auto electrician and have it rebuilt / refurbished.

    Lots of places will do it, very routine job if it's a standard Lucas dynamo, even if it is old technology.

    D&R Auto Electrical in Naas or Autostart in Rathcoole would be where I would go, depends where in the country you are though.

    edit: If you are trouble shooting I always start with the regulator box

    I'd head to Balfes in Rathcoole if you were in a position to, I brought over a dynamo off a Fiat 850 and he had all the bits to rebuild that,, very fast turnaround also.

    3rd Autostart / Balfe's Rathcoole, had a solenoid replaced on an old Ducellier starter there.

    Ended up getting a Dynamator which was easier and cheaper than dynamo and regulator service.
    Down in West Cork not much other choice.
    Very pleased with result though.
