Technical help from Rudge experts...

Sam E Radial is on hand to answer those nagging technical questions like "which gearbox striking forks should I use on my 1937 Special?".

There are only 4 variations of striking fork used in the coarse tooth 500cc gearboxes (1930-39). If you have the correct gear cluster in your gearbox for 1937, then the striking forks you need are illustrated in the picture. You will need to check the striking forks first and further information is contained in the Remedies. Now there's a thing!
