25D distributor question

Post by MorrisJohn »

I’m posting this question on behalf of a friend, who’s a non-forum user.

He’s wanting to find out the correct markings on a Lucas 25D dizzy from a 1967 1098cc Minor? The number on it is 40849 but he’s not sure what letter should come after it (it’s unreadable). A, B, D etc?

Anyone know?

An answer for your friend.Reference books show A40849 25D4 as being fitted to Minor 1000 HC 1963-66. The car you say was 1967.( Supply in the parts bin still being used up in the factory early 1967 ? till they ran out. )
Another source :-
http://morrisminordoctor.com/services/dist
shows 40849 B as being fitted to High Compression engines
Moss Europe quotes 40849 B for 1098cc engines from 10MA/U/H215530 ( engine number plate fixed to the block , left hand side as you
look at the engine , below number 1 spark plug).
