Welcome to Reopus Ignition

The Lucas OPUS ignition amplifier type AB3 was fitted to the V12 Jaguar and Daimler from 1971 to 1981. The Aston Martin V8's, Cosworth engines plus other performance cars and racing cars in the late 60’s until early 1980.

This web site is to assist the owner of cars fitted with the Lucas OPUS TYPE AB3 ignition and contains information on how to test and fault find your OPUS/REOPUS Ignition Amplifier and ignition system. 

We trust the information on this website together with your service manual will help you maintain your car and give you the enjoyment.

 “REOPUS” = The REplacement OPUS Ignition Amplifiers have been manufactured since 2005.

The REOPUS 3 and 4 amplifiers replaced the Lucas OPUS amplifier circuit board in the Lucas OPUS alloy case and used the original Lucas OPUS Pickup.

Owing to increasing problems with the original Lucas OPUS pickup, manufacture of the REOPUS 3 and 4 amplifiers were discontinued in 2012.

The REOPUS 4 was replaced by the “REOPUS H Amplifier and REOPUS H Pickup "Hall effect". 

 The REOPUS H system replaces both of the Lucas OPUS amplifier and the original Lucas OPUS pickup.

In December 2016 I decided to SEMI-retire so there are no more new REOPUS H amplifiers.

However I do have a few REOPUS 4 amplifiers I have modified to work with our REOPUS H pickup available.

I will continue to repair existing REOPUS Amplifiers and REOPUS H pickups.

I will upgrade existing REOPUS 3 and 4 amplifiers to work with the REOPUS H pickup, the improvement when using the REOPUS H pickup system is without doubt worth the cost. Contact REOPUS for information.
