The headlights on my '85 Ford yt16 are round sealed beam headlights. The headlight bezel on the hood is/are rectangle. There is a plate/bracket inside the hood that holds them in with bolts and nuts. Yours might be the same. You can find replacements on Ebay, etc. I hope this helps......

Are they broken or cloudy? If cloudy, try some of the lens polish for cars. I used to have a link to some new ones, but lost it. T'was a while back and don't remember where it was.

I got my decals from olcowhand and am very happy with them. Might send him a PM and see if he has time to do them. If you aren't in a rush, he can fix you up.

I saw a guy on another site, who just completed an awesome restoration on a 165 he called the ""Blue Money Pit".
I think he used a set of Fog Lamps and they looked like they belonged there.
But first I would try the polish like Kenny said. I need to get some and do the lights on my Buick, wifes Caravan and my Yard King GT.

Well I Haven't tried the lens polish yet, but I did send Daniel a PM about the Decals. Now all I need is a wiring diagram for one of these things as well. Does anyone know where I could find one?

This is one I color coded some time back:

I won't say the colors are exact, but helps telling where they go.

Well I think I,ve had it for 9 years now. it has been sitting in various sheds of ours 4 years ago when I was 12 I tried to get it running but it never worked out for me I tried to repaint it then as well. Thats why the funders arn't as rusty as they would be.

I really like mine, only had it a little over a year now. I'm slowly fixing things on it, will get more done when spring hits. Need to find a good seat for it, mine is shot.
