Re: headlamp ring

That sounds like you have a spring for a post war MU42 headlamp that has a sort of claw attachment for the rim. The DU42 has just a straight spring wire.

The slot in the bottom of the bowl are side to side in the DU and front to back in the MU. Ron

Re: headlamp ring

So you have an MU42 headlamp! I presume you also have the 'claw'?

Place the spring inside the shell with the open end towards the front. Then put the hook of the claw through the slot and locate it on the short flat part of the sping in the middle. The claw should dangle down and have the spring resistance to hook it into the hole in the rim.
