Re: Lucas starter motor, dated 09/50 (12 v) 2551 4D M418G

I believe that none of the Series Ones used this starter, irrespective of its date of manufacture. Lucas made this model from 48-50 for a variety of makes and models. Most likely it came from a Rover 60 or 75 sedan.

Loosen the fuel cap and try again. I had a 93 RRC with a similar issue. The cap wouldn't breath and the tank breather apparently was clogged.
