Simms CAV Minimec history

Anyone know the history of the injector pumps? I have a CAV which looks similar to a Simms. I believe Lucas was involved at some time. I assume the Minimec is the product name.

It's all the same pump. Somewhere I have the chronology of the pump but all three companies-- Minnemec, CAV, and Simms were the subject of takeovers and mergers. So the only thing that ever changed was who owned the facility that made the pump.

The pumps on our 1973 engines say Simms on the cover plates.

Ours still work, any Lucas involvement must have been minimal.
