SIX-VOLT BULBS FOR HEADLIGHT

Postby Dan England » Thu Dec 23, 2004 1:40 pm

I received a call today from a fellow who is restoring a cub. He is ready to purchase six volt bulbs for the headlights but was quoted a price of $90 from the only source which he is aware of. I remember that someone identified a company which could provide them at a reasonable price but my search did not provide any information. Can someone help locate a cheaper source. Thanks, Dan

Dan - are you talking about sealed beam headlamps or the 1133 bulbs?

B.D. Sorry about the delay. His tractor has sealed beam headlights. He will appreciate info from any forum member who knows of a source which can supply them for less than $90.00 per light. Dan

You sure he was quoted $90 each, not for all three? OEM has the bulbs for $36.50 each.

OEM's bulbs are okay & definately worth the money if they are a quality product, but nowhere near correct in appearance.. If the $90/ea is for NOS IH bulbs I can see that, although I never sold any for that price :( .... I can remember being at an auction about 7 or 8 years ago where 2 cases of NOS bulbs sold for approx $125-150 per bulb.

farmallcub49: Were the ones which you got for eight bucks each sealed beam? Also, did you find that the quality was satisfactory. I plan to call him soon and relay the information which I have received. Jim: I am not familiar with OEM. Can that company be reached on-line? Thanks, Dan

They are GE and worked great for me. I am a good friend of the TISCO dealer, so that is why I got the price I did. I maybe able to get them from him again, if your friend will get the shipping.

I have just talked with Pete, the fellow who is restoring the Cub, and suggested that he read the items on this thread. He was not aware of this forum and I think that he may wish to visit from time to time after he gets the info he wants on the headlights. Thanks for your help. Dan

Dan,
OEM can be found at http://www.oemtractorparts.com/

Farmallcub49,
Did you get sealed beams with 2 screw lugs on the back or the ones with a single centered screw lug? The 2 screw type are called PAR36 and are pretty common.

Pete: I didn't think to mention this to you when we talked but the Tisco Tractor site lists two dealers in Magnolia, Fallin Tractor and Langford Tractor. I haven't checked with Langford in a couple of years. I think he was pushing retirement age the last time I visited so I don't know if his business is still open. Farmallcub49 got a special price but you might find that Fallin or Langford, if they do handle Tisco parts, would be your cheapest source. Let me know if I can be of further help. Did your grandmother like the Cub? Dan

Jim,

They are the two lug type.

I don't feel that I recieved a good price, because my buddy just bought some at NAPA for $7.95.
