I will try and check tomorrow and let you know.
High atop Hummingbird Hill
In the Missouri Ozarks
Standard 4411/4511 "PAR36" sealed beams will fit the pancake housings with a little modification. All you need to do is follow my How-To up in the How-To forum.
I did the conversion on my Super H and they work great.
Thanks Matt, I took a look at your "how to". I think I will try this approach with my 1956 Cub. Where can I find the gasket material you used?
Those are replacement gaskets for the pancake light housings, purchased from OEM Tractor Parts.
Since then, I've found that the "sealed beam" lights are not sealed beams at all!!!
I have a bunch of burned out pancake bulbs, and I needed a lens for the conversion lights on my Dad's W-400.
The pancake bulb is a steel reflector crimped over a glass lens. Inside the "bulb" is a complete separate light bulb, like the ones inside the older-style bullet lights!!!
The problem is you can't get to the real light bulb without destroying the pancake bulb in the process.
For want of a $2 light bulb you have to throw away a $40+ pancake light... Who says non-serviceable, throwaway, proprietary, planned obsolescence is a new idea?
I have heard that it is possible to open the original sealed beam and replace the bulb, but I have never tried this. I will look for the gasket material at OEM. Thanks
