Technical help from Rudge experts...

Sam E Radial is on hand to answer those nagging technical questions like "How is the Miller ammeter fixed into the headlamp on my 1937 Special?".

Miller introduced their 2" moving iron ammeter in 1930 and these were fitted to Miller equipped Rudge machines until Rudge production ceased in 1939. The method of securing the ammeter in the headlamp was the same - a 'securing bridge', 2 off 4BA thumb nuts and 2 off 4BA phosphor bronze spring washers as illustrated in the picture. Don't forget, that to aid indirect illumination, the 'securing bridge' also held in place an 'ammeter reflecting ring (part no S34) which was painted white and the ammeter was sealed to the headlight with a thin rubber ring.
