Classic car electrics

As the owner of a classic vehicle, you certainly know: The classic car electrical system is often the Achilles' heel of the vehicle. Fuses, corroded contacts or improper repairs create problems in the electrical system. To ensure that your vehicle survives such scenarios in the best possible way, SC Parts offers a wide range of vehicle electrics - but see for yourself!

Vehicle electrics: basics

No matter whether you drive a pre-war car, a classic car or a youngtimer - all vehicles have more or less sophisticated electrical systems that need to be looked after, cherished and renewed when the time comes - and that professionally and safely. The most important thing is that you are well versed in the basics of vehicle electrics if you are going to be doing it yourself.

For this purpose, SC Parts offers two books, for example, which provide you with valuable knowledge on the subject of automotive electrics and electronics. Using simple examples and partly also practical exercises, they impart knowledge about the basics, troubleshooting and maintenance of electronic components in the vehicle:

Above all, the recognition of faults and the correct measurement of electrical values is the key to the topic of classic car electrics.

Vehicle electrics - our SC Parts range

SC Parts is not only the leader when it comes to manufacturing and purchasing spare parts for your classic car, we are also in the best position when it comes to questions and answers about vehicle electrics.

If you are looking for an electrical system or accessories for it, you will find a wide range of products for many brands, from Austin Healey to TVR, Fiat or Rover - to name just a few. The categories are assigned to the brands and partly also to the individual models (sorted by manufacturer).

So you simply select the part you are looking for and then your vehicle type. If you are not sure if you have found the right part, please do not hesitate to contact us. Either by telephone on 0 26 83 - 97 99 0; weekdays from 6.00 to 22.00 and also at weekends, or conveniently by contact form.

Everything for the conversion to alternators

With our conversion kit and accessories for conversion, all Lucas C40, C42 and C45 DC alternators can be replaced. The state-of-the-art technology is hidden inside the housing, where the new powerful regulator is also integrated. The old regulator is replaced by a dummy that remains without function. This way, the original look and character of your classic is not affected.

Your advantages:

  • half the weight, twice the power (3.2 kg instead of 5.6 kg)
  • more alternator power with less resistance to rotation
  • more engine power where it belongs: to the wheels, not to the alternator
  • the original look is retained

Cables and wiring harnesses

When it comes to cables and cable harnesses, you can choose between two types of products at SC Parts. Namely, cotton-sheathed electrical cables and PVC-sheathed electrical cables. Behind the cotton variant is a modern electrical cable with PVC insulation - so the two variants are just an optical variant.

High-performance starter

Half the starting current, twice the starting power - that says a lot about our high-performance starter. For the perfect starter that fits your vehicle exactly, follow the link to the product page.

Starter batteries

A classic car starter battery is part of the authentic engine compartment of a classic car or youngtimer. And even when it comes to storing classic cars, professional battery maintenance is of great importance. But see for yourself our hard rubber starter batteries with 6 volts and either 57 Ah or 65 Ah.
