Why did you remove it in the first place? Trying to give yourself more problems?

The part spins so whatever makes you think that it will stay on at high RPM.

Seriously? They have to use Tape to help hold the freakin magnets in place?? Typical fine British engineering.  Just shaking my head in disbelief... headwipe.gif

You could put red tape over the green tape. Would that be too much red tape ?

Back in 1962 when they started out  ....  The original designs and Patents was made way back in the 70's . They were  a very popular conversion for  British cars distributors back in the day.

Corporate Headquarters really means nothing in this day and age of Global Economies. . Multiple company buyouts over the years/decades.. 

 

EdIt. Scan of just one of the Patents... in 1975

LOL. Especially to you, it seems. 

From Per-Lux, through Grote International to PerTronix Inc, there's no "British Engineering" connection:

Loving the Canadian connection in there. I guess for you irony is how you get those nice crisp folds in your shirt.

Typical corporate hype story, distributed around to various parts suppliers to make the brand look like it has history.  Doesn't' say anything about where Per-Lux started, or who "the engineer" was.  He could have been a Lucas engineer.

Bessie that, assuming that all "tape" is the same and that a good engineer couldn't specify one that did the job is a bit misguided.  The tape has worked for thousands or hundreds of thousands of people for hundreds of thousands or millions of miles.  It's simple, easy to manufacture, and apparently cost effective process, based on the price of the final product.  It's been working fine.

Well, I'm all ears. If PerTronix has any clear British DNA, then let's hear it. Where's the (roast) beef?

It's still undefined.  Per-Lux is a mystery firm.  You're right though, there doesn't seem to be a U.K. link.  Is Hemphill a British name?  Maybe that's it...

He's looking Californian, Silicon Systems.  https://www.google.si/patents/US3581720

Then Fountain Valley in 3906920, above.

Guys, don't get in a big sweat about this. Life is too short.... I recall Perlux as being British from way back in the mid 70's. Mainly because they kept popping up on MGB's racing at out local track WestWood. Per Lux was sold by a British Vendor in Vancouver at the time ( Abbington Motors ) who  " said " they were from great Britain. Too long ago and too faded a memory to bother persuing. So as one Commenwelth Nation to another, if I have slighted our UK brethren I hereby humbly apologize.

Besides..... you have Lucas and all that entails... including Warm Beer beer.gif
