This is very fine -

I wonder if a couple of spot lamps on my Appia would look good.

"I wonder if a couple of spot lamps on my Appia would look good." Difficult to use them with a dynamo, Andrea

Why? We managed OK before alternators came along! I've survived many hours night-time driving in my 6 volt Austin Seven with headlamps and one spot lamp, and have experienced no problems with, admittedly limited, night-time running in my Appia with two spot lamps.

It depends on the power the extra lamps need especially at low revs when the dynamo output is limited, Andrea

There now is no need to fit an alternator LED bulbs take so little power
The other big advantage is you can buy an LED side light bulb (front) that flashes amber.
There is some re wiring to do see

Thanks!

I am getting an alternator anyway.  My first classic car, back in 1989, was a 1970 Triumph Vitesse Mark II, which, like an Appia, was in tech terms basically a 1950s car, but one that remained in production until the early 1970s.  I recall its dynamo failing on a dark drive home.  It got an alternator the next week.

Tim not when it comes to safety and the advantage of LED bulbs nobody knows you fitted them. Other drivers do not recognise white flashing front side lights.

Regarding fitting an alternator to an Appia I fitted  one and it boiled two batteries. The problem with an Appia is the exhaust manifold is too near where the dynamo/alternator are mounted the heat cooks the diode. I know of at least one other Appia owner who had similar problems.

I like this look, from the Appia - Riley One Five comparison (with Don Cross's corrections of errors in the comments).  Is the Appia a member's car?
