* The Lucas Lighting Set No. 302

Posted on August 22nd, 2011 by ploughmyfield. Filed under Lighting, Manuals.


The reign of the Lucas Cyclops lighting set came to an end in 1953 with the United Kingdom Road Transport Lighting Act. The replacement was two headlights with integrated side lights and a whole different bracket to attach the number plate at the rear. How do I know this? I’ve received a 12 page document issued my Lucas containing fitting instructions for the 302 lighting set. It makes for fascinating reading.

Cable Routing

The above image, just one of many from the document, shows the routing and position of the No. 302 lighting system. What is equally interesting to me as a diesel tractor owner is the routing of the battery cables and clips between the two Lucas 6 volt batteries. The image also shows the optional hinged seat bracket. I just can’t put this document down and keep picking it up to check or investigate any number of aspects.

I find this next picture astounding, it shows the position the front lights should be mounted if a loader was fitted. It uses the standard brackets turned upside down and bent to suit.

A big thank you to Mr G. Reeve for contacting me with this item.

I have had two original instruction sheets sent to me. I don’t need two and wondered if anyone wanted to buy one of these original Lucas documents? If you are interested then please get in touch. – item has now been sold
