Davenport Miles counter

Recommended Posts

Hi Andrew, is your chassis an English truck? I have 2 American makes with mileage recorders in the front hubs, and the mid twenties albion truck I've got has a recorder halfway down the chassis like yours, driven by a cable from the rear of the gearbox, I think its albions own recorder? same idea, different maker?

Hi lads,


It seems there was a few different styles of counters, but not that common. Keeping track of the Miles would be a good thing for servicing, but I guess it was early days in the development of trucks.


The chassis is a Clarkson (steam) lorry, built in Chelmsford, Essex.



Cheers, AG.
