This is really for those searching in the future who need to remake the connection to the hall effect sensor on the distributer of lucas equipped c900 turbos after (i think) 1991. I've used the UKS archive a lot recently - but found nothing on this - so might help someone.


Might be obvious to the more technically minded on here - but how to fix it stumped a total amateur like me for a bit- so might be of use to someone when the wires to the distributor break off right next to the plug like they did on mine during a 5 minute job leaving the car immobilised.....

The connector is different from earlier Bosch and if the connection is poor, or becomes broken when removing the distributor then no starting will occur.

connector part number is : 171906230- but appears hard to get hold of/£35 plus/ both.

This can be replaced with a Bosch "3 pin EV1" connector which are readily available. I got one off ebay for £7 at the time of writing which works fine. Just need to crimp/solder into the existing wiring.

extra tip - don't put the plug body on first.......it goes on after. Then you don't have to order a second one.

The connectors are more commonly just known as JPT (junior Power Timer).

note that if you buy one that doesn't already have a pigtail attached you need the correct crimp tool to attach the terminals and these are about £30
