Well in a effort to try and keep my old 444 as original as possible but yet update it a bit I just installed a new set of halogen headlights with real glass lenses. And the good part was it cost me a hour of my time and 20.00 at Orielly's. Now don't go grabbin your chest and thinkin when did Orielly's start selling parts for Case GT's.But I stopped there to pick up a new spark plug being how the old one needs to be in the henry Ford Museum as a vintage artifact that by God still worked but just did not want to shine anymore. Well I got a new Champion H10C and while I was walking the Isle there they were in all there glory and on sale to boot. Well at 19.99 a pair I thought if anyone on the GT site ever caught me buying these for my old 444 I would probably be shunned like that fella from amish mafia. But I needed to do something with my old 1eyed beast so I got them. Had to do a bit of triming to make them fit but Man are they sharp. And bright to I can't wait to get our next nightime snow just so I can go show them off. Well thats all I got today I did get her up and running. Thanks again guys for all your input just figured I would fess up to buying tractor stuff at the auto parts store. CYa thanks

Looks great to me . Any thing to help see better is always better. I've been on the thinking board of how do some brighter lighting on my JD314 Sockets molded in hood and plastic lens makes hard .

I want to know more about these!   Do you have any more info?   Brand, or part number or something?    Those old tail light bulbs in my Case tractors REALLY SUCK for headlights.    I even found some Speaker 777 glass lenses and went to brighter bulbs, but they still suck.   I gotta get me some of those halogens.

LIghts look good but you might want to think about leveling up your shop floor some. Looks kind of hard to walk on that slanted surface.

Well I can tell you that I got them at Orielly's auto parts they are distributed by Tiger Accessory Group LLC 6700 wildlife dr. Long grove IL. 60047 I did have to trim about 1/4" across the bottom of the stock square hole. And make it about 1/2" wider then drill 2 hole for each lite they mounted from the rear and I put 2 screws that came with the lites straight in the front right next to the lense on each side it took me about 45 minutes to do both but wow a huge difference the part number is 35-K1073/5. And they were 19.99 for the set and are halogen water tight I did go around on the inside with a bit of silicone to make sure and I can see like a car headlite now. A huge improvement. And I think you can hardly notice the opening up of the original holes. Good luck I am sure any Orielly's has them I just figured its a cheap improvement. On the instructions they say for driving or fog use i will post a pic of the advertisement and how they look up close in my grill good luck.sorry about the pics turning sideways my Iphone does that now and then.thanks guys.

That really does look good.  You even used screws that match the surround color.  Good job!
