Dynamo for 1937 Special 4 Days, 22 Hours ago  
Hi - I've just bought a 1937 Special basket case and have already found this site incredibly helpful in sorting out what's what, especially prior to purchase. First order of business is to work out what's correct and what isn't (and what's missing!).
One item that could go either way is the dynamo - I have a Miller DM3M and according to the model specs it should be a Miller DM3G. I can't find any guidance on what the different codes mean and whether the one I have would be suitable or whether I need to source one with the correct code.Does anyone have the gen(sorry!) on Miller dynamos?
Most of the rest of the parts seem to be OK but please brace yourself for more silly questions as I delve deeper!
cheers

Hi Brian, thank you for the positive comments on the site, appreciated. There is a picture of the correct DM3G Dynamo in the Galleries section but the important points on Rudge DM3G dynamos is that they have a FLAT front casting to seal on the chaincase and a pin in the body for locating on the crankcase ( Remedies 24). I have no information on the DM3M but most Miller dynamos can be rebuilt to DM3 G spec. Sam

Hi Sam

thanks for the prompt reply - I had a good look (now I know what I'm looking for) and there is no pin in the body but it does have a flat back. It is marked anti clockwise rotation seen from the drive (flat) end.

Hopefully it can be refurbished and "Rudgeified" - can anyone recommend someone to do the work?

cheers
