Ignition switch Lucas S43

#1
Hi all. I'm restoring a 1934 Rover 14HP Sports Saloon and I'm looking for an ignition switch.
It is Lucas no S43 with the switch position for the Lucas Startix system.
Does anybody know of anybody who has one and could be persuaded to sell it?
I have bits of the original, so would also consider a dismantled one.
Thanks

Hi Derrick
Thank you for your reply.
I attach an mage downloaded from the internet. It is quite a simple switch with just a key and the pushbutton to start.
The key turns 1 position to the left and 1 position to the right.
Many thanks and
Kind regards
Barrie

Hi Derrick
The key turn to the right is perfect for normal starting. The key turn to the left is to operate the Lucas Startix, self start system.
In the absence of any starter switch, I would be interested to buy 1 of yours, whilst still searching for the original S43 type.
What condition is it in? and how much would you want for it?
Thanks
Barrie

Hello barrie, the cost of postage is $28 aud that makes it too expensive,maybe you had better try and source one closer to home. in the future if you come up empty handed and you are desperate i will most likely still have these.best of luck Derrick.
