Falcon 87 is fitted with a Wipac alternator. The engine is 20T, not 17T (which has Lucas electrics). Sandy

If it's the Falcon 87, that is being discussed, then the 200cc (20T) was upplied with a Wipac generator, so says my Wipac manual.  AMC used Wipa ecltrics on ALL their smaller bikes, from the G2 matchless & Nortons Jubilees, to the 150 Fanny Bs & the James looky likes.

Generator

Post  piston 197 on Sat Oct 07, 2017 6:04 am

Yes the 175.17T engine used in both the James cavalier and the FB 79 Light Cruiser used a Lucas Generator, it also used the awful PRS8 combined ignition and lighting switch made by Lucas, all of the other AMC engine bikes which used the 200 and 250cc engine used Wipac.
The 17T and the 20T share the same components with the exception of cylinder, crank, carburettor and piston ( up to engine 3032 only afterwards they share the same piston), so therefore it must be a straight swap to replace the stator and rotor on the 20T and 25T with a later, higher output encapsulated Lucas unit, providing a rotor with the right diameter hole in the centre is used ???

John

Are you looking for a generator for a 175 or a 200cc?  You mention a Falcon 87

What's the engine number ?

Engine type

Post  piston 197 on Mon Oct 09, 2017 1:40 pm

Original post is for a Falcom ( spelling mistake) 87 so presumably it is for a 20T engine and these are the same as 25T and are Wipac

17T. Stator

Post  kerabo on Wed Nov 01, 2017 1:28 pm

Did you find the part you was searching for?
I just found a Lucas stator and magnet rotor in a box of bits .
Most likely 17T
