Rear light bulb

Postby Cstrock » Sun Jan 03, 2021 8:12 pm

Anyone know where to buy a rear light bulb for super c. Not worried about the red light. It’s 12v. Anyone got a number at least

That depends on which style light, you have. Please elaborate.

Local auto parts stores for standard automotive light bulbs. If you have the old bulb or the socket end, take it in. They can match it up.

Frequently they have red light bulbs.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Yea I tried auto stores. They didn’t have anything. Not sure. It’s a big bulb. Has the red light in the dome. The center has the socket where the White bulb goes. Not sure how to be more specific it won’t allow me to add pic

Steiner lists a bunch of bulbs. You might look there and see if they can match it. There's no # on the socket base?

I assume you are asking about a bulb for the conventional lamp, typically called a teardrop lamp. If so, the 6-volt bulb you have is a number 1133. The 12-volt equivalent is 1143. If you can't find it, an 1156 is a common backup lamp bulb that can be used. 1156 has a smaller glass bulb but fits the socket. There are a variety of substitutes that can be found (e.g. LED types).

I think that from your description, Jim's info above should fix you up. If your light is not teardrop shaped, we'll have to start over.

I always get mine from Steiner. I just got a couple of the LED bulbs from Steiner that supposedly replace the standard bulbs in the original housing. It has been too cold to tackle so far but I am anxious to see the lumen improvement. It seems most of the snow plowing is in the dark....maybe work has something to do with it.
