The correct Lucas model is DKX2A, the ‘A’ standing for anticlockwise. Very similar distributors, but with four-cylinder type caps were used by countless small cars in the 1930s, 1940s, and early 1950s, notably the Ford Model Y ‘Tudor’, so classic car specialists can supply all sorts of parts for them. The early Royal Enfield vertical-twin Meteor also used the DKX2A. I have a 1951 Scott-Lucas leaflet for these distributors, and no doubt our Librarian Dave Bushell also has it and will be able to supply a copy. The rotation direction of magnetos and distributors is defined by looking at the DRIVE end, not the points end !

See the attached, scanned from a Lucas equipment catalog for Motorcyles for an explanation of what the “A” stands for , or I am I missing something? Yes it is determined by the drive end.
