Thats what I fitted to my mates MK2 Cortina, he wanted it to look like a dynamo, but with better charge control, looked and worked well.

It is a more expensive option though, so you've got to want the look to make it worth while. In my case, it's certainly worth it but it's not for everyone.

Yes, I'm with you if you there, I am a sucker for nostalgia but not averse to hiding some 'tech' within it if you can't tell the difference between that and the original.

Rich,

 

As I understand it, the WSC dynamo to alternator instructions posted early cover conversion of the XI chassis loom to use the later Midget Lucas alternator so you should be able to follow them.

As an update, I've sourced a block connector for my Lucas alternator and I've now wired up the battery return cables and have yet to wire in the brown/green from the loom into the spare connector in the block.

Also, I have joined all the brown cables together, and the brown/yellow and brown/green together, and terminated the unused brown/blue and black cables. I've actually used some heat shrink with solder in to combine the wires, a real easy solution. As you heat the connector the solder wires the cables, and as the heat shrink shrinks there is also a band of glue that activates and creates a waterproof seal. And instead of using spade connectors for other items on the loom I've used the same connectors for splicing in the light holders for the gauges etc. I just hope IVA like them!
