Technical help from Rudge experts...

Sam E Radial is on hand to answer those nagging technical questions like "How is the 2" Miller ammeter retained in the shell?".

The Miller 2" ammeter first appeared in 1930 and the shell fixing method was the same from then until Rudge stopped production in 1939 (for other makes like Vincent, it carried on post war of course).

The ammeters were mounted in the headlamp on the ammeter mounting studs using a ‘securing bridge’ – Miller part No S35 (enamelled black pre war or cadmium plated post war) and 2 brass 4BA knurled thumb nuts (S36) and phosphor bronze spring washers. Orientation was fixed using a projection in the body at 6 O’ clock which mated with a cut out in the headlight. A thin square section sealing rubber ring (2” ID x 2.1” OD x 0.054” thick) (S33) was used between the ammeter and headlight to seal the ammeter to the headlight.  Now there's a thing!
