I would love to find a source for them as well. I think so far Scott has the most information on them. I know I have seen these lights used on other things but of course I don't know what.

Of all places Summit Racing. So does this mean our tractors are going to be higher horsepower with the new lights?

 

I think I am going to pick up a pair and see how they look.

Sears actually has them too, but over $10 higher each.  But I got more info off the Sears page.

Wow Daniel, Thanks for doing the search and finding these. :thumbs:  :worshippy1:  I bet they are really bright with the halogen bulbs in them.

Yep, worked hard finding them.....took almost 10 minutes!  I kinda stumbled on some old vintage fog lights, so then based my search on that and found these.  I think they are dead ringers as far as the housing...other than the chrome back.  Good nuff for me!

I had seen these lights but did not want to order them with out seeing them first hand. Yesterday I found them in a local car performance shop- pictures below for comparison.

The chrome ring fits tight on the nos shell, but the angle for the screw to go in does not match up- sill think I may try to bend the shell tab so it will screw in- for $30 still not a bad deal even if you just needed the chrome rings.
