This style of light will have a post arrangement like this.

The actual replacement sealed beams are sold by antique tractor suppliers but will cost you about $30 each. Those will be a direct replacement for the OEM sealed beams. Myself, being the cheap son of a gun I am, I adapted off the shelf Wagner #4511 ($9.00) sealed beams to use in my flat back lights. I plan on keeping this Cub forever and don't want to shell out $90 to replace the sealed beams if I ever have to replace them all again. :shock:

Here is a link to a post in the How To forum showing the use of the 4511 bulb. viewtopic.php?f=140&t=37256
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

If you can get the sealed beams for $30, you should buy up as many as you can.

Last I checked they were $42 and up.

I did some surgery on one of these bulbs a while back, and found out that there's nothing "sealed beam" about them. It's just a normal bulb glued inside a reflector housing with a lens over it.

The bulb could possibly be replaced with some careful work.

My 1953 cub also had the sealed beam lights. After the sticker shock for 3 new ones, I bought the tear drop lights and changed them. The bulbs are only between $1.50 and $2.00 when they go out.

I need to replace some bulbs on my 1956 Cub and found that a headlight reflector is available for this housing. It apparently converts the pancake light to accept an inexpensive bulb.

Has anyone used this?
