I am appealing for help in locating a Lucas E 3 dynamo that is suitable for an Ariel model B. This is a 1929 model currently under restoration in the Czech Republic. It is about 90% complete but the owner is missing the above mentioned dynamo. In the notes he sent me he states that, "He needs a Lucas dynamo E3 with cutout"
I have done a quick ebay search but my lack of knowledge on this subject does not allow me to identify if those that are for sale are correct for the year and model.
If anyone could assist or has one for sale either working or not then please get in touch. I have seen the quality of his work and it is excellent. Any sale of what is undoubtedly, I would assume, quite a rare item would be going to a good home.
I look forward to any replies

The Magdyno type are likely to be the best, avoid the ones for twins as they have a funny end plate.
The type you want looks like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/185509635025 ... Sw~QRi2njI this is dated April 1932 See the 432 stamped on top.
The correct drive end plate looks like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224902651856 ... SwvRpiPFhj
Here is another but I cannot read the date https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/165332024103 ... SwBylh-TWe
This one is a bit rough and missing the comm end cover https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/402468514113 ... SwCU9fdahE

The parts are pictured in the 1930 parts book, where the dynamo is simply listed as E3, the later E3M is designed as part of the Magdyno.
